Forest Carnivore Sub-Committee

The Wildlife Chiefs’ Forest Carnivore Sub-Committee, formerly known as Wildlife Chiefs’ Wolverine Sub-Committee, was established by the President and Board of Directors in January of 2015 to address an identified need. Sub-Committee membership includes the Wildlife Chiefs from those western states where wolverines currently exist (WY, MT, ID, WA). This is a time-limited sub-committee of the Wildlife Chiefs that can be dissolved once the major work is accomplished. The committee’s approved Statement of Purpose:

“Develop a statistically defensible multi-state monitoring plan for states where wolverine populations exist (WY, MT, ID, WA); Seek funding to implement the monitoring plan; Coordinate development of individual state wolverine conservation plans for states with suitable wolverine habitat; and Coordinate and prioritize research efforts.”
