Wolf researchers advocate intervention
by Cat Urbigkit, Pinedale Online!
May 10, 2013

The New York Times has published an editorial by three researchers whose work has focused on the wolves of Isle Royale National Park, documenting the inbreeding and decline of that wolf population that was originally established by wolves traversing ice from the mainland. Now that the population is in decline, the researchers are advocating that action be taken to "reintroduce" wolves onto the island where a known population already exists an island that also happens to be a wilderness area, where nature is supposed to take its course.

Rather than documenting what happens next in this natural drama, researchers want to actively manipulate the situation.
