ABSTRACT
The article discusses efforts by researchers to bring back the wolverine population of North America from the brink of extinction. Wildlife biologist Bob Inman has been tracking wolverines in the western half of the Yellowstone ecosystem with hopes of understanding and aiding the elusive species. Efforts to add the wolverine to the endangered species list have been thwarted by a lack of knowledge on wolverine populations. Wolverines are renowned for their ferocity and elusiveness. They live in high elevations in remote areas. The wolverine's habitat is threatened by global warming, land development, and logging.
