Ecological effects of wolf recolonization on Michipicoten and the Slate Islands, Lake Superior

Until recently, woodland caribou, a species that is listed as threatened both federally and provincially, remained abundant on the relatively undisturbed and predator-free 184 km2 Michipicoten Island, and the 36 km2 Slate islands provincial park, both in Lake Superior.

About the event

Both islands were naturally recolonized by  wolves via ice bridges in winter 2014.  Prior to wolf recolonization, these islands were home to most of the remaining caribou in the Lake Superior Coastal Range.  Our research objectives include assessing the impact of wolves on caribou and beaver in these relatively simple island ecosystem.
