DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — The National Park Service plans to hold public meetings in Minnesota and Michigan on Isle Royale's wolf population.
Isle Royale National Park Superintendent Phyllis Green says the meetings will be held to explain the island's wolf predicament, offer new information and take public suggestions.
Wolves on the 45-mile-long island in Lake Superior have been steadily declining in recent years. Scientists involved in an ongoing study of the predator-prey relationship between wolves and moose on the island say wolves may need a "genetic rescue" by introducing new wolves from another area.
The meetings will be held this month in Duluth, Minn. St. Paul, Minn. Houghton, Mich. and Chelsea, Mich.
