Ecological Studies of Wolves on Isle Royale
June 8, 2018
Isle Royale – Between January 2017 and January 2018, the wolf population continued to be comprised of just two wolves on Isle Royale. Moose abundance probably increased over the past year even though the most recent point estimate declined from 1600 to 1475 moose based on the moose census in 2018. In the absence of wolf predation, moose abundance may double over the next four or ﬁve years.
