ISLE ROYALE NATIONAL PARK--   Researchers are releasing summer predation data from Isle Royale National Park. 

National Park Service, State University of New York – College of Environmental Science and Forestry and Michigan Technological University biologists monitored wolves introduced to the island in the fall and winter of 2019. It’s the first time wolf predation has been studied during snow-free periods.

ISLE ROYALE NATIONAL PARK--   An Upper Peninsula wolf has joined 14 others on Isle Royale National Park.

The 70-pound, three-year-old male was captured on the mainland last week and flown by sea plane to the moose-laden island. It marks the second year of the National Park Service’s efforts to restore predation to Isle Royale after wolf numbers decreased to only two. Since last September 12 other wolves were brought from Ontario, Canada, Minnesota, and a Canadian island.

LANSING, MI--   Michigan has received $22,000 for non-lethal activities that protect livestock from wolf predation.  

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is granting $850,000 to ten states and the San Carlos Apache Nation under the Wolf Livestock Demonstration Project Grant Program.
