ABSTRACT
The article features wolverines in the U.S. In the 1920s, the population of the wolverine had almost gone to extinction but has managed a dramatic recovery in some states from the 1960s to the 1980s through bans on wolverine trapping in most places. In several areas, including Montana, northwest Wyoming, central Idaho and the Cascade Mountains in Washington, genetically-isolated populations have been created. In 2003, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service were approached by conservation groups in 2003 to consider wolverines for protection under the Endangered Species Act.
