The Fond du Lac Resource Management Division has a Wildlife Program
responsible for the management of wildlife resources on Fond du Lac
Reservation and in the 1854 and 1837 Ceded Territories.
Among the various responsibilities of this program are recommending
seasons and bag limits to the Bandís Reservation Business Committee,
collecting and reporting harvest data, review of plans affecting wildlife
resources and liaison work with the State of Minnesota and various tribal
and federal agencies.
In addition, the program engages in habitat improvement projects, surveys
for a variety of game and non-game critters and various research projects.
Among others, this list includes
prescribed burning, seeding of wild
rice, impoundment construction, common loon, wood turtle, amphibian, ruffed
grouse and moose surveys. Most
of this work is coordinated with local state, federal and tribal agencies as
well as other Resource Management Division Programs.
In 2002 the Fond du Lac Band in partnership with the 1854
Authority, the Minnesota Department of
Natural Resources and the US
Geological Survey, initiated a moose telemetry project in
northeast Minnesota. The
purpose of this study is to gain information on the population dynamics and
movements of the moose herd.
