A New Wolverine Study

An Updated On Wolverine Management

A new wolverine paper from ongoing studies in Rainbow Lake, Alberta and Red Lake, Ontario lists human-caused mortality (especially trapping) as a major risk to these two wolverine populations in Canada’s boreal forest.

Key points from the study:

  • The survival and population modelling suggests that human-caused mortality is a significant risk to these populations.
  • The results can be applied to wolverine status assessments and used as benchmarks for future monitoring.
  • Wolverine population stability or growth might be achieved by reducing incidental trapping deaths or injury and hindering human access to wolverine habitats through decommissioning or limiting development of industrial roads or other anthropogenic linear features.

This aligns with recent studies from the Yukon and from British Columbia that also single out human-caused mortality as a significant factor in wolverine population declines. We’re working behind the scenes to ensure that wolverine trapping and proper habitat protection is at the forefront in any wildlife management plans for wilderness areas that support wolverines.

In the meantime, visit our Trapped In the Past Campaign page to learn more about commercial and recreational trapping and how you can support wolverines and other fur-bearing animals subjected to this outdated and inhumane practice.
