Wolves and moose on Isle Royale

Post by CLBaileyi » Mon Apr 07, 2008 12:26 pm

Thought you might be interested in the latest information re: wolves and moose on Isle Royale. This is the longest running study of predator/prey with wolves done, thanks to folks like Durward Allen, L David Mech, Rolf Peterson and John Vucetich.

Also, the following is a link to the project itself. They are celebrating 50 years of work on the island...pretty exciting stuff! They have some great photos of wild wolves, along with the habitat and other animals living on the island.
