Last Lake Superior caribou surviving on their new island homes

From the Duluth News Tribune in Minnesota:

The caribou of the Lake Superior region, which once numbered in the thousands across a wide swath of three states and Ontario, are surviving on just two islands and a small herd on the mainland as their future continues to be uncertain.

After a dramatic airlift operation in 2018, an estimated 23 caribou seem to be doing well on Ontario’s Slate Islands on Lake Superior, with maybe 10 on Caribou Island on the big lake. About 20 survive on the North Shore mainland east of Marathon, Ontario.
