Status of the wolverine (Gulo gulo) in Alberta

Description

This wildlife status report looks at the wolverine, which is the largest terrestrial member of the mustelid family, wich includes weasels, badgers, otters, martens and mink, among others. Historically, wolverines were found throughout the province, but its recent range extends north of a line between Cold Lake and Edson, and along the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains. The wolverine has been included on the list of species that may be at risk in Alberta. This report is part of the Alberta Wildlife Status Report series, which provides comprehensive summaries of selected wildlife species intended to be useful to those managing populations of species and their habitats, and to help identify species that may be formally designated as endangered or threatened.
