Wolverine researchers are looking for strong men and women, who love the outdoors and can carry a beaver carcass long distances.

It's a bizarre job description, but wildlife biologist Tony Clevenger is hoping the volunteers can help him track migration patterns of wolverines in Banff, Yoho and Kootenay National Parks.

One of the main focuses of the study is to determine the impact of the Trans Canada Highway on their movement.

Tony Cleaver explains what type of people he's looking for to help him with his research, and then Daybreak host Chris Walker speaks with Cal Sime, one volunteer who's ready to take it on.
