FWS Adds Wolverine to Threatened Species List

The animal was first considered for listing ten years ago.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has added the North American wolverine to the threatened species list. The agency claims that climate change has begun to threaten the mountainous habitat of wolverines.

There are reportedly about 300 wolverines remaining in the contiguous United States, where the animals roam the northern areas of Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, and Washington.

President Obama’s administration originally proposed listing wolverines as threatened in 2013 and began the process of changing the policy. President Trump’s administration deemed the change unnecessary in 2020.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Director Martha Williams as she heads the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
  • For Secretary Deb Haaland to be directed by the Lord as she oversees the Department of the Interior.
