Shutdown threatens long-running wolf–moose study at Isle Royale NP; could also halt reintroductions

HOUGHTON — The partial shutdown of the federal government may imperil the latest iteration of the wolf-moose study on Isle Royale National Park.

Researchers are planning to head to the island for several weeks beginning in March for the study, which tracks the relationship between wolves and moose on the island. Launched in 1958, it is the longest continuous predator-prey study in the world.
