Description

Wolverines were thought to have disappeared from Utah's northeastern wilderness due to overhunting and trapping. But images from a 2014 camera trap show that this elusive carnivore may be returning to the area. A conservation group founded by National Geographic Emerging Explorer Gregg Treinish is recruiting ultra-runners to help with the exhaustive search for wolverines. The runners' skill in trekking through rough and remote terrain makes them valuable assets in checking camera traps that may hold more clues to the wolverines' existence.
