Yorkshire Pine Marten Project

Pine marten by Chas Moonie

NatureSpy are running an ambitious project to capture the first ever image of a wild pine marten living in Yorkshire.

If the Yorkshire Pine Marten Project is successful, it is believed it would be the first time a pine marten has been pictured living Yorkshire.

Working with the Forestry Commission, the project uses wildlife camera traps in forests across the North York Moors which trigger when a wild animal passes in front of them, snapping a picture or video of the critter.

Although the project focuses on looking for martens, the camera traps also collect a wealth of videos and data on the other animals that call these forests home, and allows us to get a glimpse into behaviours and activity that are rarely observed...
