When people ask why does (Arctic National Wildlife Refuge) need protection from both Canadian and the US governments, it is because of animals like this, and the people who've lived along side them for thousands of years.

"[Wolverine] den sites on the North Slope may be melting earlier in the year than at wolverine den sites in the Rockies."

"Female wolverines, which birth a litter of kits every one to three years, live with their young for about a year. “We have pictures from reproductive dens of the mother with her kits,” Glass told me. “They spend a lot of time just playing. They’ll play with each other, and then they’ll go bug mom, who’s taking a nap. It looks like a family scene from any species you can think of. They’re cute and roly-poly.”
