    Hi everyone, I was just wondering if you could help me compile a list of zoological establishements ect that currently house wolverines, or if you can guide me to any websites that I could have a look at.
    I know CWP, Edinborough & Whipsnade house them.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Those three are the only public collections in the UK with the species*.


    This is a good website for this sort of question: ZootierlisteHomepage :)



    *I'm not aware of any held privately, but I don't have any specific knowledge that there aren't any!

    The wolverines at Edinburgh will be moving up to the Highland wildlife park in the very near future as work has began on a new enclosure for them.
