Wolverine research ongoing in Mountain ParksPosted: July 8, 2012
By Larry Halverson/Friends of Kootenay
Dr. Anthony Clevenger and his team are heading into their final survey of wolverines in the Canadian mountain parks.
The data will be used to conduct the first assessment of highway effects on wolverine population connectivity and will have important implications for how highways are managed throughout wolverine range in northern US Rockies and Canada.
The main emphasis for research on wolverines is for the twinning of the Trans-Canada Highway but research is also being carried out in Kootenay National Park. Next winter (2012-13) they will repeat their survey over 6.000km2 in Banff, Yoho and Kootenay National Parks.
