What Defenders is Doing to Help
Advocating for Federal Protections
For nearly two decades, Defenders of Wildlife has been pushing the federal government to protect wolverines under the Endangered Species Act.
Technology in the Field
A major part of wildlife conservation is having enough information about the species to take action. For wolverines, this has often been a challenge.
Male wolverines are typically 30-40% larger than females.
Height: 16 inches (males); 14 inches (females)
Length: 31-44 inches (including its bushy tail)
Weight: 25-55 lbs (males), 15-30 lbs (females). Exceptionally large males can weigh more than 70 lbs.
Lifespan: 10-12 years
