For seven weeks each winter, we live on Isle Royale National Park, a remote island wilderness in Lake Superior, North America. Here we follow the lives of a population of wolves and moose that inhabit the island.
We will use DNA extracted from museum specimens of four bird species that went extinct in North America in the Twentieth Century to determine the sizes and distributions of their populations leading up to their final days.
