Conservation Northwest has successfully worked with volunteers for years to monitor wolverines - discovering several new wolverines! - and other wild creatures in remote areas of Washington. That data helps wildlife researchers and policy makers.
Conservation Northwest is working to keep wolverine habitat in Washington's Cascades connected to other habitats in British Columbia and east to the Rockies. We are also monitoring their populations by sending volunteers to put out camera traps and help us with winter tracking.
In the past few years, we've placed remote cameras in potential wolverine habitat to entice visits by wolverines and other rare carnivores. In 2012, cameras at a pole station recorded a wolverine named Peg, the first wolverine documented south of Highway 2 and Stevens Pass in more than 20 years. By June 2013, eleven wolverines have been documented in Washington State.
