A pack of wolves is about to save this national park | Popular Science
When a Chicago man brought his sick dog on a fishing trip to Isle Royale National Park, he set off the outbreak of a virus that would devastate the island’s wolves. The disease, canine parvovirus, “went through the population of wolves like wildfire,” says Phyllis Green, superintendent of the park, a boreal forest on the western edge of Lake Superior, in Michigan. None of the wolf pups survived the winter. Within two years, 36 of the island’s 50 wolves were dead. That was 1982. Today, only two wolves roam the island. The pair is an inbreeding disaster—the father mated with his mother, so his daughter is also his sister. Unable to reproduce, the predators were all but certain to die out.

That was until earlier this month, when the National Park Service announced its final decision to reintroduce 20 to 30 wolves to Isle Royale over the next three to five years, starting as early as September. “This is a bold action,” says Lynn McClure, regional director for the National Parks Conservation Association. “It’s the first big step towards getting the wolves back.”
