In the autumn of 2015, Vincent Wildlife Trust translocated 20 pine martens from Scotland to Wales as part of the Trust’s Pine Marten Recovery Project. This video is a compilation of footage filmed by our staff and from camera traps to give a snapshot of the martens’ journey and how they are settling into their new territory.
VWT staff have recently produced a video: Restoring the Pine Marten 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. Visit our project website for more information on pine marten recovery.

This is a compilation of footage from our camera traps, which we are using to try and detect the extremely rare Welsh pine marten, and is a celebration of biodiversity in Wales for Biodiversity Week 2013.
