Upgrading from a Rebel T3i to T6s~Upgrade the lens? Wildlife shooting is the goal.

I'm a hobbyist who shoots landscapes, macro and wildlife.  I'm about to upgrade the T3i to T6s.  I like the swivel touch-screen and higher megapixels.  So the question is, do I also upgrade the lens?  I'm planning to keep my 10-22 mm for landscapes, and I have the original 70-300 f4-5.6 mm non-L, which I took to Africa for some nice wildlife shots.  In three weeks we head to Yellowstone where I hope to get some great wildlife opportunities.  With the higher megapixels of the new camera I'll be able to crop more, so I don't think I need more than a 300 mm.  But, would the upgrade in camera warrant an upgrade in lens?  Should I also upgrade the 70-300 f4-5.6 lens to the 70-300 f4-5.6 L?

Thank you and Happy New Year!
