Save the Wolves of Isle Royale National Park?

Michael Nelson, Ruth H. Spaniol Chair of Renewable Resources and Lead Principal Investigator for the HJ Andrews Experimental Forest, co-wrote a recent NY Times opinion piece about the future of the wolves in Isle Royale National Park.  This park, located in Lake Superior, consists of 134,000 acres of boreal and hardwood forests where a life-or-death struggle between wolves and moose has been the subject of the world’s longest study of predators and their prey, now in its 55th year.
