Cascades Wolverine Project 26325212_1538582217967097_r.jpeg Cascades Wolverine Project is a grassroots effort to boost winter wolverine monitoring in the North Cascades, capture engaging images of elusive mountain wildlife, and leverage the skills of winter backcountry recreationalists as wildlife observers and alpine stewards. 

Background: Biologists seek to answer basic questions about wolverine ecology, but the intrepid Gulo gulo is notoriously difficult to study due to the remote and rugged terrain they inhabit.  Our team collects important occupancy data and engages those who share the mountains with enigmatic wildlife.  With the backing of wolverine biologists, Conservation Northwest, and support from Patagonia, this project has had a significant impact on North Cascades alpine wildlife science and mountain culture.

Our Work: During winter of 2017-2018 we installed seven winter camera-trapping stations in the North Cascades that contributed to ongoing monitoring and conservation, and we engaged the backcountry community through public talks and social media.  We are asking for your donation now for the 2018-2019 field season, and to continue developing means of educational outreach to ensure the wolverine persists in the Pacific Northwest. 

Please donate this winter season 2018-2019 to keep eyes on the Gulo gulo, spirit animal of the alpine. 

Thank you from the top of the mountains and the bottom of our hearts!

Thank you to everyone who supported the 2017-2018 winter field season, it was a success! We installed and maintained seven monitoring stations, captured images of wolverine at three locations, and identified a female named Stella based on her chest blaze markings (pictured here).
