UPPER MICHIGAN - The Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) says a new survey found that the Upper Peninsula’s wolf population is stable.  The 2024 winter wolf population survey estimate from the Michigan DNR found a minimum of 762 wolves in the Upper Peninsula. This year’s estimate showed an increase of 131 animals compared to the 2022 estimate of 631; however, the results demonstrate a continued trend of statistical stability in Michigan’s wolf population meaning the U.P. wolf population has achieved an equilibrium between the availability of habitat and the number of wolves that habitat can support over time.  The survey, completed last winter, found the population distributed among 158 packs in the U.P., with an average of 4.8 wolves per pack. This year’s survey represents the highest population estimate since 2012 when the department began doing the semiannual survey.
