wildlife management cover Research efforts by Voyageurs National Park staff including Steve Windels and Jennifer Fox, as well as former VNPA Executive Director Cory MacNulty, made the cover of The Journal of Wildlife Management.

From their article "Effects of Water-Level Management on Nesting Success of Common Loons:"

"Results demonstrate that water-level management can be altered to benefit productivity of common loons. However, nuanced interactions between land-use change, invasive species, human development, recreation, climate change, and recovery of top predators may often complicate both management decisions and interpretation of water-level impacts on wildlife." © 2013 The Wildlife Society
