The New Gibbes Museum

Lake Superior and the Wolves of Isle Royale
Due to its isolation, Isle Royale is the least visited National Park. It lies in the heart of the largest fresh water lake in the world, Lake Superior. It is home to the longest, continuous, predator prey research program that’s just celebrated its 50th year. Wendy Fish, our presenter, is a member of CCR and a native Minnesotan who has been fascinated with wolves and the research project related to them. This has led her to create a PowerPoint presentation utilizing the data collected and setting it to music.
