    Wolverines are one of the most elusive mysterious animals on the planet. Wolverine researchers in Western Canada have spent the last ten years putting the puzzle pieces of how to conserve wolverine for the long term into place.This film will focus on one of the crucial missing pieces by following wildlife scientist, Mirjam Barreuto on her quest to find elusive breed female wolverines in the high alpine mountains of Canada's west. Mirjam is part wolverine herself, as a tenacious scientist and endurance athlete, she’s the perfect person for the job. She is trying to find out what females wolverines (engines of the population) need to survive, and what the effects of things like logging, mechanized recreation, and fur trapping are on wolverine populations.
