Study­ing vul­ner­a­ble wolver­ines

Canadian Wildlife - - DISPATCHES -

Re­searchers from the Univer­sity of Cal­gary are study­ing wolver­ines (Gulo gulo) in Banff, Yoho and Koote­nay na­tional parks and the Columbia Moun­tains. Though these car­ni­vores have a de­served rep­u­ta­tion for be­ing able to look af­ter them­selves among other an­i­mals, their ter­ri­to­ri­al­ity and low re­pro­duc­tion rates have made them vul­ner­a­ble to cli­mate change and the spread of hu­man set­tle­ment. This re­search aims to as­sess how many wolver­ines there re­ally are and how they are af­fected. For more in­for­ma­tion, see rmout­
