Threatened Status for the Distinct Population Segment of the North American Wolverine Occurring in the Continguous United States

Docket ID: FWS-R6-ES-2012-0107
Agency: Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS)
Parent Agency: Department of the Interior (DOI)
On February 4, 2013, FWS proposed to list the wolverine in the contiguous United States as threatened, and proposed a 10(j) experimental population in Colorado, Wyoming, and New Mexico. However, FWS finds that while there is significant evidence that the climate within the larger range of the wolverine is changing, affecting snow patterns and associated wolverine habitat, the specific response or sensitivity of wolverines to these forecasted changes involves considerable uncertainty at this time. Therefore, we published a withdrawal of both proposed rules on August 13, 2014. See 79 FR 47522 for more information. For information on the experimental population, see RIN 1018-AZ22.
