Yorkshire Pine Marten Support Programme

Pine marten by Chas Moonie

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.

Because of that amazing footage, a new 3 year project has been launched to understand more about pine marten on the North York Moors, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The Yorkshire Pine Marten Support Programme will cover more areas much more intensively, support existing populations where found, and develop a long term conservation plan for pine marten in the area.

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…
