List Wolverine as Endangered

 

 

PETITION:

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/812/223/009/list-wolverine-as-endangered-species/

 

 

  • Target: Mr. Rowan W. Gould, Acting Director U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
  • Sponsored by: Animal Advocates

 

The US Fish and Wildlife Service estimate that there are no more than 250-300 wolverines in the lower 48 states. Despite that alarmingly low number, Montana Dept of Fish, Wildlife and Parks decided on August 2nd to continue wolverine trapping.

 

Of all the remaining states with wolverine, only Montana still allows trapping. At one time wolverine were far more common, and ranged from Maine across the northern states and from Montana to New Mexico in the Rockies and from Washington to California’s Sierra Nevada. Today in the Rockies only Montana, Wyoming and Idaho still have breeding populations.

While the best estimate of the wolverine's population by the Fish and Wildlife Service for Montana is 150-175 animals, the "effective" breeding population of wolverine may not number more than 30-50 individuals. Trapping just a few breeding wolverines would be detrimental the long term survival of the species.

 

We ask you to list the wolverine as an endangered species and tell Montana to stop it's proposed trapping. With so few wolverine left, Montana has exercised very poor judgement in being able to sustain a healthy population and has used no sound science in its decision making.

End Wolverine Trapping in Montana ! PLEASE SIGN ! !

Animals  (tags: animals, AnimalWelfare, environment, protection, wildlife )
Cher - 9 hours ago - forcechange.com
Wolverine trapping practices in Montana have reduced the wolverine population to dangerously low numbers. All other states in the contiguous U.S. have acknowledged the need to encourage population growth and have made wolverine trapping for fur illegal.

Wolverine  (Gulo gulo)

http://www.arkive.org/wolverine/gulo-gulo/

 

The elusive wolverine (Gulo gulo) has a fearsome reputation - it is the largest member of the weasel family. The remoteness and voracious appetite of these creatures have led to an aggressive reputation. Males are much heavier than females and both have a stocky body and short legs. They are well adapted to the cold habitat of their northern range with a thick, bushy coat and broad, hairy paws. The glossy coat is dark brown with a paler stripe across the rump and along the sides of the body; some individuals have white throat patches. The powerful jaws and large teeth are able to demolish frozen carrion and bone. Wolverines carry their head and tail lower than the arched back and their gait appears somewhat humpy and lumbering although they can move very quickly when necessary.

 

RANGE

Wolverines have a circumpolar distribution in the northern hemisphere, and are found from the western United States, Canada, and Alaska to Siberia, Russia, Eastern Europe and Scandinavia. Previously their distribution extended further south reaching the Baltic States and southern California respectively, but with human encroachment the range has retreated northwards, leaving remnant populations in pockets of remaining wilderness in sub-arctic regions. Populations in North America and Europe are sometimes divided into separate subspecies, known as Gulo gulo luscus and G. g. gulo, respectively.

 

HABITAT

The wolverine is found in alpine, tundra and northern taiga habitats.

BIOLOGY

The wolverine is possibly the least known of the northern hemisphere’s large carnivores. Individuals are solitary, except for mothers with their young, and can occupy enormous home ranges depending on habitat and prey availability. Male’s home ranges may encompass those of several females, and the largest have been estimated at around 920 square kilometeres. Wolverines tend to alternate periods of activity and sleep throughout the day and night, when awake they are capable of crossing vast distances, climbing trees and swimming rivers. Mating occurs from April to August and births take place the following spring, usually within a den or sheltered area appropriated by the mother. Litters typically contain two to three cubs, which are born blind and with white fur. Weaned after nine to ten weeks, cubs often stay with their mother for over a year and females are therefore likely to reproduce only every couple of years.

Wolverines are reputed to have a voracious appetite and are even known as the ‘glutton’ in some areas. They do not hibernate over the cold winter months as some other carnivores do and are opportunistic scavengers, often feeding on carrion. The diet varies across their range with wolverines in Scandinavia feeding on wild and domestic reindeer, and those in Alaska consuming whale and seal carcases. Food may be stored for later consumption but wolverines also actively attack some prey, especially smaller mammals such as domestic sheep.

 

THREATS

Wolverines have declined through much of their historic range; they are very sensitive to human disturbance and have retreated to remaining areas of wilderness. They continue to be threatened by habitat loss and also by a loss of prey species or even other carnivores (such as wolves) that provide carrion. Where they do exist near humans they can come into conflict with farmers from attacking livestock; persecution and poaching are therefore pertinent threats. In addition, populations that are protected are slow to recover due to slow reproduction rates caused by the small litter size and the fact that females only reproduce every few years.

 

CONSERVATION

WWF International launched a Large Carnivore Initiative for Europe (LCIE) in 1995 and under this initiative an Action Plan has been drawn up for the conservation of this species in Europe. The wolverine is protected in much of its range but more research into the population dynamics and behaviour of this elusive creature are desperately needed. In Europe especially, where there are fewer areas of true wilderness left, any conservation initiative will have to work closely with local people to combat prejudice. In the United States, the wolverine is yet to be listed on the Endangered Species Act due to the paucity of data surrounding this species, highlighting once again the need for further research.
