Ma’iingan (wolf) Population Monitoring on the Fond du Lac Reservation

February 23, 2022 @ 3:00 pm

Ma’iingan, the wolf, is a central figure in the Ojibwe creation story and as such, many tribal members feel a close spiritual connection to the wolf.  Wolves also can be charismatic, divisive and a significant northwoods predator.  The Fond du Lac Band’s Resource Management Division has been studying wolves for the past several years working to estimate the number of wolves annually using the Reservation.  This research includes trying to determine the location and size of local pack territories, locating their dens and monitoring reproduction and tracking causes and rates of mortality.  In addition, the Division works to determine the impact of significant activities, such as the Line 3 pipeline construction, on the resident wolf population.  Mike Schrage, the wildlife biologist for the Band’s Resource Management Division will share the results of this work in his presentation.

Date: Wednesday February 23rd at 3 p.m.

Location: 195 (auditorium) or Zoom

It is awesome here at the FDLTCC Education Program because it is like a family here, if you need help or are struggling with anything, you have quite a few people who will help you out.

I chose FDLTCC because of its size and the curriculum. When I first came here in 2019, I was just looking for what I needed to volunteer, perhaps in a crisis shelter. I met with Don Jarvinen, and the rest is history.

My favorite thing about FDLTCC is the people. I’ve met fantastic students, faculty and staff who go above and beyond what I expected.
