Wolves and Buffalo follows the fortunes of one pack of wolves, the Delta Pack. Will the pups survive their first year? Will the packs alpha animals retain their pack position to breed again next year? As they try to bring down the buffalo to keep themselves and their new pups alive what will the future hold for these ancient warriors?

Observing wolves in their natural environment is never easy but wildlife filmmaker Jeff Turner has had more luck than most over the years. More than 20 years ago he first went to Wood Buffalo Park and filmed an event between these two species that had not been seen for more than a hundred years: wolves hunting buffalo.
