'The Wolverine State' without any wolverines
We've got the nickname "The Wolverine State," and of course, the University of Michigan and the Wolverines are forever linked.
But the wolverine never called Michigan home.
The wolverine population in the United States is anything but big. An estimated 250-300 wolverines live in the lower 48 states.

Bridget Fahey is a 1997 graduate of U-M's School of Natural Resources and Environment.
These days, Fahey is the Endangered Species Chief with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for the mountain prairie region.
She joined us today to talk about wolverines.
