Yorkshire Pine Marten Project

NatureSpy are running an ambitious project to capture the first ever image of a wild pine marten living in Yorkshire.
In August 2017, after 4 years of looking, we finally captured a single male pine marten on Forestry Commission land on the North York Moors.
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.
We'll now be focused on finding out if there are more martens, and supporting any that are here. If you'd like to help the project continue, you can join our crowd-funder for more equipment here.
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...
