What are the status and distribution of wolverine, fisher, lynx, bobcat, and pine marten in North Cascades NP?

0

Stressors And Related Factors: Habitat fragmentation of lands outside the North Cascades Ecosystem; lack of habitat connectivity; human disturbance; legal hunting (bobcat only) and poaching mortality; most of these species have small disjunct population sizes. What To Monitor: Presence/absence, distribution. Where To Monitor: In suitable habitat within park boundaries and/or work with other agencies to ensure monitoring occurs in cases where most suitable habitat is outside park boundaries. Justification and other information: Wolverine, fisher, and lynx are candidate species for listing; very few data exist for these species. Methods for monitoring have recently been established. There are many interagency opportunities. Bobcats are subject to legal hunting in the national recreation areas, despite lack of population data.
