Last wolverine in California

Posted by Christine, February 25, 2011

The woods, meadows, and streams of California’s Tahoe National Forest make up a diverse ecosystem, rich in biodiversity and home to a variety of wild animals — but for one male wolverine that calls the region ‘home’, things are a little on the lonely side. Buddy, as he’s known, was first spotted three years ago, the first confirmed sighting of a wolverine in California since 1922. Researchers believe the animal is originally from Idaho — and that he walked the harrowing 500 mile journey, in defiance of the odds, only to wind up as the only wolverine in town.
