Petition to help protect Wolverines

PETITION: Protect Wolverines
Target: U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

There has been a unanimous recommendation by scientists that the wolverine have the status of "threatened" under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). However, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) has abandoned their plans to protect this majestic species. There are fewer than 300 of these animals left in the Lower 48. Most of these 300 are in the northern Rockies. With this small of a population, scientists estimate that their reproductive capacity is no more than about 30 annually!! This small populations of wolverines face a mounting list of threats, including habitat loss, low reproductive rates, direct and indirect trapping, and low genetic diversity. Not to mention the impact that climate change is having on their ever decreasing habitat.
