Isle Royale National Park is planning several public meetings to take place in November regarding the issue of wolf management. The meetings are aimed at presenting information about the history of wolves on Isle Royale, climate change implications, and current and future status.
"Isle Royale has a long-standing history of broad ecosystem management," said Park Superintendant, Phyllis Green. "I hope the public takes this opportunity to become more informed on the natural resources of the island."
Officials say that the presentations will be followed by an opportunity for the public to discuss natural resources, ecology, climate change, and wildlife management.
