! Pine Marten kits born in the wild in Wales
The Vincent Wildlife Trust – one of the environmental charities supported by TBC in 2016 – has exciting news: pine marten kits have been born in Wales. The pine marten carries the title of Britain’s second rarest carnivore after the wildcat making these births a very significant moment in the conservation of this native mammal.
At least three of the ten female pine martens brought to Wales from Scotland last autumn by The Vincent Wildlife Trust have given birth. Staff from the Trust’s ‘Pine Marten Recovery Project’ placed remote cameras at a number of sites where they believed female martens were preparing to have young. Further investigation has confirmed a total of at least five kits. Read the
