Conservation groups fight for wolverine protection

Earthjustice filed a 60-day notice of intent to sue the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on Tuesday. The group, acting on behalf of 10 conservation groups, says the institution “violated federal law when it refused to protect the estimated 500 wolverines in the lower 48 states” in March.

The decision was justified by saying that wolverine populations in Canada were stable and genetically similar to the population in the U.S. According to Tim Preso, staff attorney for Earthjustice, “if Fish and Wildlife used the same logic with wolves, grizzly bears, peregrine falcons and bald eagles, none of those populations likely would exist today in the lower 48 states.” Read more in the Jackson Hole News & Guide.
