Waiting for Protection:  Wolverine


This wolverine (Gulo gulo) is nothing like you’ve imagined from the movies. A member of the weasel family, it looks like a small bear, with dark, thick fur and often a silver facial mask. Found in areas such as Alaska, Washington, and Montana, the wolverine is unfortunately losing its habitat due to global warming, according to WildEarth Guardians. Trapping has reduced the species’ numbers further, and only about 250-300 wolverines are estimated to be left in the contiguous United States.
