For the past three years wildlife biologist Dr. Tony Clevenger has investigated wolverine populations in Canada’s Banff, Yoho and Kootenay National Parks. Now, with support from Y2Y, he has extended the study area to the unprotected landscape between the parks and the U.S.-Canada border.

Preliminary findings from the research suggest Alberta’s Castle Valley (which Y2Y has been pushing to have protected as a Wildland Park) is an important link that connects endangered U.S. populations to healthier groups of animals located in Canada’s Rocky Mountain Parks.

Listen to Dr. Tony Clevenger and Karsten Heuer, Y2Y President, discuss what the research is telling us about wolverine populations and how this information is shaping Y2Y’s conservation strategy.
