Wolverines Discovered in Northeastern Oregon

Photographs of two individual wolverines and tracks in the snow are some of the preliminary results from a new study that has confirmed the presence of wolverines in eastern Oregon.  The Wolverine Foundation is behind the project and describes it as follows: 

“This pilot study is focused on surveying for wolverines (Gulo gulo) in the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest within and adjacent to the Eagle Cap Wilderness using proven non-invasive detection methods for wolverines.”
