A Michigan DNR survey in 2019 showed 695 wolves in the Upper Peninsula. The number has been consistent (between 600 and 700) since 2011, so it is believed that the UP is right about at its carrying capacity. (The numbers given are a minimum estimate.) Wolves returned naturally to the UP through immigration from Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Ontario in the 1980s. [Michigan DNR Survey].
