Mapping the Wolverine Way: Identifying Conservation Corridors and Transboundary Linkages in the Canadian Crown of the Continent Region

The work addresses information needs by providing science-based information to inform the conservation and management of wolverines in the Canadian portion of the Crown of the Continent. In the United States (US), wolverines are currently being reviewed for Threatened under the Endangered Species Act. The multi-partner survey effort in Canada alone has resulted in amassing camera and Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data over an area greater than the size of the entire Crown of the Continent ecosystem (>51,000 km2 [>19,000 mi2]. The project will merge occupancy and genetic datasets in order to strengthen dispersal models and identify linkages throughout the Canadian Crown of the Continent.
