Here’s where the wolverines live in Sweden

During the winter 2016/2017 the wolverine population of Sweden was estimated to around 500 animals.

In Sweden most wolverines live in the mountain areas.  But they have started to re-colonize the forest grounds from which it was exterminated earlier. In 1999 wolverine rejuvenation was found to have taken place for the first time in a hundred years. In the north part of the landscape of Hälsingland there is evidence of the presence of several wolverines and rejuvenations have been found to take place for several years.  Also in the landscape of Ångermanland and in the province of Dalarna wolverines are known to be living there. So, very likely, the wolverine is on its way back to his former home grounds.
