Partnering with the Alberta Trappers’ Association to identify where wolverines occur in the province and to determine the major factors associated with their distribution.


The Wolverine Partnership is a unique research approach that combines traditional knowledge and cutting edge science.

To do this, bait stations with remote cameras are set up within the Registered Fur Management Areas of volunteer trappers. Trappers check and maintain these sites throughout the winter and then provide the photographs to biologists, who analyze them to determine what site characteristics are associated with a higher probability of finding wolverines and other species.
