Wolverines are rare, elusive, and incredibly enigmatic. This makes them very difficult to research, and even harder to manage. This is especially true in Alberta, which is on the edge of wolverines’ species range. The Alberta Wolverine Working Group was formed to foster cooperation and partnerships between government, NGOs, and industry. Working together, our mission is to spread the word about wolverines, and advance wolverine conservation in Alberta!
We are always seeking ways to get the word out about wolverines, and expand wolverine research and conservation! To learn more about the Alberta Wolverine Working Group and how you can contribute to conserving wolverines in Alberta, Contact Us, and follow us at facebook/AlbertaWolverine.
What have we learned about wolverines in Alberta in the last 10 years? Read a summary article in the Alberta Chapter of the Wildlife Society’s January 2013 ACTWS Newsletter.
Wolverines share their landscapes with close cousins martens and fishers. Read about how they get along and share their homes here: Fisher et al 2012 – Martens and Fishers.pdf.
The first of a series of scientific publications on our research is out! Read it at Ecology and Evolution.
Wolverines are the “demons of the deep forest“; read about them in an article by famed columnist Ed Struzik. Check out the great article about wolverines by Bruce Kirkby, one of Canada’s premiere adventure travel writers, in the Globe and Mail!
