DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — The National Park Service plans to hold public meetings in Minnesota and Michigan on Isle Royale's wolf population.

Isle Royale National Park Superintendent Phyllis Green tells the Duluth News Tribune ( ) meetings will be held to explain the island's wolf predicament, offer new information and take public suggestions.

Wolves on the 45-mile-long island in Lake Superior have been steadily declining in recent years. Scientists involved in an ongoing study of the predator-prey relationship between wolves and moose on the island say wolves may need a "genetic rescue" by introducing new wolves from another area.

The meetings will be held this month in Duluth, Minn. St. Paul, Minn. Houghton, Mich. and Chelsea, Mich.
