Severson Dells presents the Isle Royale Wolf-Moose Project
Severson Dells Nature Center will host a free program about the Isle Royale Wolf-Moose Project at 6:30 p.m., Monday, April 11, at the Center, 8786 Montague Rd.
Presenter will be Dr. John A. Vucetich, an assistant professor at Michigan Technological University, Houghton, Mich. He is a population biologist who spends most of his time studying the wolves and moose of Isle Royale.
He also has great interest in the philosophy and ethics of ecological and conservation science.
“The purpose of the Isle Royale Wolf-Moose Project has been to observe and understand the dynamic fluctuations of Isle Royale’s wolves and moose, in the hope that such knowledge will inspire a new, flourishing relationship with nature,” he said.
Isle Royale is located in the northwest portion of Lake Superior. This is the longest study of any predator-prey system in the world.
