The southernmost reach for wolverine populations in North America occurs in small, semi-isolated subpopulations in the Rocky Mountains of Montana, Idaho and northwest Wyoming, the North Cascade Range of Washington and the Wallowa Mountains of Oregon.
Maintaining wolverine distribution in suitable habitat and connectivity in their range, at a multi-state scale, is critical for ensuring wolverine survival over the long term. State and federal agencies in this region, as well as tribal and NGO partners, are collaborating to advance wolverine conservation across their range.
This project includes maintaining landscape connectivity among occupied wolverine habitats, assessing the feasibility of expanding their range, and a comprehensive monitoring plan. The project engages key partners at multiple levels to prioritize habitat conservation, population connectivity and management activities.
