VWT staff have recently produced a video: Restoring the Pine Marten to England and Wales.

The pine marten was once common across much of Britain, but is now one of our rarest mammals. Today, the pine marten population is increasing its range in Scotland, but in the rest of Britain it is considered to be functionally extinct. The Vincent Wildlife Trust has embarked on a major recovery project to bring the pine marten back to England and Wales.

The video highlights some of the research we have been carrying out to establish the present status of this rare British mammal, and explains why we believe that intervention is needed in order to prevent the pine marten from going extinct in England and Wales.
