Douglas Smith

Wildlife Biologist

National Geographic Explorer and wildlife biologist Doug Smith worked at Yellowstone National Park for nearly three decades. He was hired in the 1990s to reintroduce the wolves into America’s first national park. Unsure of the outcome, Smith and his team hoped for the best and watched as balance in the ecosystem was restored. This success led him to spearhead the Yellowstone Wolf Project, one of the most prominent wolf research programs in the world.
