Follow along as a backcountry ski guide and field biologist attempts to document an elusive population of wolverines.

“When our government fails to act, can citizen science save endangered wildlife from climate change?” The teaser for this documentary film nearly sounds like an intro to a superhero movie. It’s a citizen hero versus a threat to one species’ very existence.

Sure, the film’s got skiing, but it’s also got wolverines. (A natural athlete, you’ll learn.)

And it packs in a whole lot of conservation education.

“This is a documentary aimed at addressing the current plight of wolverines and is intended to spark greater understanding and conversation around the link between wildlife and climate change,” summarized the film team.

For those looking for a film at the intersection of skiing and conservation, it truly doesn’t get any better than this.
