Wolverines Urgently Need Your Help -- Again

Action: Wildlife Conservation

November 18, 2013   Action Alert ID# 121

 

Wolverines may be ferocious, but climate change and dwindling habitats are threats their diminishing numbers may not survive.

These fierce, solitary hunters once roamed across the mountainous West. But aggressive trapping and development have pushed them into just a handful of states -- there's only a single male known to exist in both California and Colorado. Now climate change is posing a threat to the persistent spring snowpack they depend on.

Our changing climate is shrinking the spring snow cover wolverines need to find mates, raise cubs and migrate. Also, without the snow's protection, trappers and hunters have easier access to wolverine habitat. And warmer temperatures mean human infrastructure, roads and recreational activities are expanding into wolverines' remote home ranges.

These threats all point to one thing: Wolverines desperately need the full protections of the Endangered Species Act.

Last spring the Center for Biological Diversity and thousands of supporters like you took action to protect wolverines, but now the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is questioning the climate science. The Service is proposing to protect wolverines as "threatened" not "endangered" -- which would allow many of the activities that have brought them to the brink of extinction to continue.

Please take action by telling the Service to protect wolverines as endangered and extend all the protections of the Endangered Species Act to help them fight to survive.
