Breeding Range Map
Wolverines are generally most common in sub-alpine and alpine zones in Washington. It occurs in the Cascades and northeastern Washington. During winter, it sometimes descends into mountain valleys (still within the snow zone) where large game are plentiful for food.
The large area over which the Wolverine occurs is not indicative of a large population. It is a low density species that ranges over a wide area. In this state, it is recovering from near total extinction, and its population is unknown but certainly very low.
