Proposal to list wolverines managed by University of Michigan grad
Apr 16, 2013 — Bridget Fahey, University of Michigan alum, is the endangered species chief in the USFWS for the mountain prairie region. She recently project managed a proposal to classify the North American wolverine as "threatened" under the Endangered Species Act. The classification would offer protection and intervention to this largest terrestrial member of the family Mustelidae.
"As a biologist, I find the wolverine to be an inspiring species in a lot of ways," Fahey says. "It has a reputation for being fierce and tenacious, and it has already made a remarkable comeback since nearly going extinct in the early 1900s. I can't say whether my love of the wolverine predates my time at Michigan, but I definitely have an interest in the species, which probably could be attributed to Michigan."
