Wolverine - largest land-dwelling species of the family Mustelidae (weasels). In February 2013, the United States Fish and Wildlife Service proposed giving Endangered Species Act protections to the wolverine largely because climate change is whittling away its wintry habitat in the northern Rockies
The "wolverine might be listed as threatened due to climate change. After a lawsuit put forth by the Center for Biological Diversity and Defenders of Wildlife, the US Fish and Wildlife Service has made the recommendation that wolverines should be listed as threatened." #endangered #species
This undated photo provided by Defenders Of Wildlife shows a wolverine that had been tagged for research purposes in Glacier National Park, Mont. Federal officials will announce Tuesday, Aug. 12, 2014 that wolverines do not warrant protection under the Endangered Species Act in a finding that underscores the difficulties of using climate models to predict what could happen to a species decades from now.
