The Elusive Wolverine

— filed under:

Pound-for-pound the wolverine is known as one of Idaho's most formidable animals. But even the great wolverine is on the decline.

Unfortunately, wolverine populations are declining as climate change reduces the availability of suitable habitat. The wolverine is one of Idaho’s most elusive animals. Wolverines live primarily at high elevations and rely on persistent winter and spring snowpack for denning and rearing.

So what is ICL doing to help out? We are one of several conservation groups that petitioned the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to add wolverines to the endangered species list. When the agency declined to list the species, ICL joined a chorus of conservation groups to challenge the decision in court. That decision is now pending.
