Wolverines captured on film and video.

Meet a Montana Wolverine! Join us for this exclusive visit with Cass, a captive wolverine at ZooMontana in Billings who we visited after-hours at an Endangered Species Day event in May 2011. The event was sponsored ZooMontana and these other organizations under the Wolverine Network umbrella: Defenders of Wildlife, the Endangered Species Coalition, Glacier National Park Fund, The Humane Society of the United States, and the Yellowstone Park Foundation.  If you are pressed for time, Cass makes his appearance at about 1:40 (video lasts 6 minutes total).


Produced by Conservation Media for The Wolverine Foundation, this short film explores one of the most fascinating and least understood animals on the planet. This small, rare, and elusive creature may be able to kill a moose or fend a grizzly off a kill, but it faces serious threats such as climate change for which it is no match.

Check out this rare and unique video footage shot and narrated by a trail worker high in the backcountry of Glacier National Park.  It is hard to imagine any other word than “play” to describe this wolverine’s actions.
