The Alberta Trappers Association is involved in a joint venture with the Alberta Conservation Association (ACA) on a wolverine survey for the Province of Alberta. More details can be found on the ACA website (see Links). All trappers with a trapping area are encouraged to fill out this survey even if they have never seen wolverine sign on their RFMA.
