WILDLIFE RESEARCH -- Wolverine research in North Idaho and northwestern Montana got a big boost Friday from an online voting campaign spearheaded by the Friends of the Scotchman-Peaks Wilderness.
The group generated enough enthusiasm and web clicks from supporters to win a public vote for a $29,700 grant from Zoo Boise. The wolverine study proposal written by FSPW executive Phil Hough will enable Idaho Fish and Game Deparment researchers to continue their study and upgrade their research on the reclusive creatures in the Selkirk and Cabinet mountains.
Job opportunity: The grant will help fund a part-time wolverine study coordinator. Check here for the job description and application.
