The wolverine is a rugged and resourceful animal that lives in isolated arctic and alpine regions of North America. When a wolverine was photographed in Utah’s Uinta Mountains, scientists installed remote-baited camera stations across 80 miles to learn whether the notoriously ferocious carnivores are expanding their range. Who better to tend the cameras than ultra runners? Able to travel great distances through the mountains quickly and lightly, runners check the cameras, change the batteries and refill the bait in the hopes that they can be part of a scientific discovery.
