I mentioned some months ago that the animal that I would really like to see most is the Wolverine Gulo gulo. This fantastic animal, the largest member of the Mustelidae family (polecats, badgers, etc), lives in the boreal and Arctic regions. So, after much planning, I am off to Finland tonight. I am meeting up with some friends and then it is off for a week into Karelia, right up on the Russian border, with high hopes of seeing a Wolverine or two. I hope we can see one like this (photo taken from one of the forest hides we will be visiting). I will let you know how we get on!
