WUWM Environmental Reporter Susan Bence found both local people determined to protect small creatures - one the Monarch butterfly, the other honeybees. Her first stop, was at the Milwaukee County grounds – in Wauwatosa.
A few days ago, volunteers and DNR staff tallied how many wolves populate the Wisconsin landscape. Their preliminary count is more than 800, living in 216 packs. Today, officials will use that information to begin to craft this year’s harvest quota.
