Today there are only an estimated 100 Mexican Gray wolves living in the wild. In the film conservationists and ranchers weigh in on how to manage gray wolves. “Stories of Wolves” explores the complex issues between humans & wild wolves. Ultimately, it is about the vanishing wildness inside and outside of us. We all belong in the Web Of Life.
