The wolves of Isle Royale, technically part of Michigan but just off Minnesota in Lake Superior, are dwindling in number. Conservationists and interested members of the public are engaged in a major debate over what to do about it. Part of that discussion will happen this afternoon at a meeting in downtown St. Paul.
Options under discussion range from doing nothing to introducing new wolves to the island, where the interaction between wolves and moose has been a subject of study for decades. With the wolf population down to single digits, there is fear that the predator will disappear from the island unless something is done.
The Daily Circuit talks with Phyllis Green, the superintendent of Isle Royale National Park.
