What is happening to wolverines in BC?

Wolverine habitat in British Columbia is increasingly affected by human activity and climate change. Wolverines, by nature, have low reproductive rates, are sensitive to human disturbances, and require large areas to maintain viable populations. They are listed as Special Concern under the Canadian Species at Risk Act.

In September 2017, Mirjam Barrueto, a PhD student at the University of Calgary, started a research project to better understand the ecology of female wolverines throughout the Columbia and Rocky Mountains, using remote cameras and hair snagging. She plans to conduct fieldwork from 2018 to 2020 and complete the analysis and her research in late 2021.

Mirjam needs your help in funding this research! Please use the form below to support her project: Natural and human factors influencing wolverine populations.
