Isle Royale NP moose fitted with tracking collars for the first time since 1985

ISLE ROYALE, MI - For the first time since 1985, researchers doing the long-running winter study of wolves and moose on Michigan’s remote Isle Royale have placed tracking collars on some of the island’s moose.

The work was finished last Saturday, according to a social media post from the researchers. They used small teams of people working on the ground, in spotter planes to find the moose, then in helicopters to assist with capture.
