Proposal Would Introduce Up To 30 Wolves To Isle Royale

Houghton, MI – The National Park Service (NPS) has proposed a project to introduce 20 to 30 wolves at Isle Royale National Park. The proposal is the preferred alternative in a Final Environmental Impact Statement that is available at: http://parkplanning.nps.gov/isrowolves for the next 30 days.

The Final Environmental Impact Statement to Address the Presence of Wolves (plan/FEIS) evaluates whether and how to bring wolves to Isle Royale to function as the apex predator within a changing and dynamic island ecosystem. The NPS preferred alternative is Alternative B, which calls for the introduction of 20 to 30 wolves over a three-year period. The goal of this alternative is to provide an introduction of wolves that has the potential to become a self-sustaining population.

In addition to reviewing the plan/FEIS at: http://parkplanning.nps.gov/isrowolves, a limited number of hard copies are available at park headquarters as well as public libraries in Houghton and Marquette, Michigan, Superior, Wisconsin, and Duluth, Minnesota.

After a waiting period of at least 30 days, the NPS will issue a Record of Decision that documents the final decision and sets out a course of action for the project.
