(The Isle Royale research project)
The Isle Royal research project monitors wolf and moose behavior.

John Vucetich is assistant professor of wildlife ecology at Michigan Technological University. He co-leads the Isle Royale wolf-moose research project, the longest continuous study of any predator-prey system in the world.  He tells us about his project on Isle Royale and the interesting links between wolves, moose and climate change.

Professor Vucetich is also co-founder of the Conservation Ethics Group, a consultancy that helps problem-solve challenges involving both environmental science and environmental ethics. He’s taking part in the Chicago Regional Forum on Ethics and Sustainability tomorrow at the Botanic Gardens.
