Environmental Impact Statement to Address the Presence of Wolves at Isle Royale National Park
The National Park Service (NPS) has prepared a Final Environmental Impact Statement to Address the Presence of Wolves at Isle Royale (plan/FEIS).
The plan/FEIS evaluates whether and how to bring wolves to Isle Royale to function as the apex predator within a changing and dynamic island ecosystem. The NPS preferred alternative is Alternative B, which calls for the introduction of 20 to 30 wolves over a three-year period. To access the plan/FEIS, please click the 'Document List' on the left side of the screen.
A limited number of hard copies of the plan/FEIS are available at Isle Royale National Park Headquarters, 800 East Lakeshore Drive, Houghton, Michigan 49931. The plan/FEIS will also be available at the following locations:
• Portage Lake District Library, Houghton, Michigan
• Peter White Public Library, Marquette, Michigan
• Superior Public Library, Superior, Wisconsin
• Duluth Public Library, Duluth, Minnesota
After a waiting period of at least 30 days, the NPS will issue a Record of Decision that documents the final decision and sets out a course of action for the project.
Thank you for being vital contributors to the planning process.
