NEVER CRY WOLF is based on the Farley Mowat book by the same name. Filled with beautiful imagery, the film dramatizes the story of Mowat's 1940s research into the relationship between Arctic wolves and declining caribou populations. While the book and movie have been credited with changing public perception of wolves, there continue to be debate about the accuracy of Mowat’s observations of wolf behavior.
Join us after the film for a discussion with NHMU Research Curator Dr. William Newmark about surprising recent research on the impact and role of wolves in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.
