Fifty years of moose/wolf research
Isle Royale wolf project hits 50-year mark

Scientists have been studying the interactions and interdependence of wolves and moose at Michiganís Isle Royale National Park for nearly half a century.

In the late 1940s, a pack of wolves made the treacherous trip across 15 to 20 miles of frozen waters of Lake Superior to Isle Royale, located not far from the Canadian border. There they found a wilderness island safe from hunters and traffic and home to an abundant moose herd. The wolves settled in to a self-contained ecosystem where they were virtually the only predators and the moose were their primary prey.
