In the wilderness, wonders lie hidden, where nature unfolds in its splendor, in every moment a new picture born, that folds my soul with joy.

The *wolf was once the most widespread mammal in the world next to humans: until the Neolithic period, wolves were found almost throughout the entire northern hemisphere. Today, however, they live only on less than two thirds of the original habitat.

From many parts of Europe the wolf disappeared even completely - and there, where it was exterminated by humans. In Germany, for example, the last evidence of a wolf pack disappeared around 1850 in Brandenburg. In 1990, the animals were placed under legal protection throughout Germany and the foundation stone for the return of the wolves was laid.

There are different opinions as to whether animals have a
have a soul or consciousness. Some believe that animals such as wolves
have a soul, while others believe that they are just instincts and reflexes.

Recently, however, there has been increasing scientific evidence
that many animals, including wolves, have a conscious mind. Studies
have shown that many animals have complex cognitive abilities and emotional
emotional responses that may be associated with consciousness.

When you look into their eyes, those looks, there's no doubt in my mind.....

Since the beginning of the 21st century, the reintroduction of the wolf in Europe and thus also in Germany has gained momentum. Against the background of the worldwide as well as the Germany-wide loss of biodiversity, this is a positive development and shows that especially the strict protection on national and international level is effective.
