After 4 years of searching, NatureSpy and a team of hard-working volunteers finally got the proof they needed - pine marten are living on the North York Moors.
But now we have a lot more questions and need to take the project to the next step.
We need to find out;
- How many there are?
- Is this the only one?
- Where has this marten come from - is he a Yorkshire native, Scottish, illegal release etc?
To do this, it's vital we raise funds. These funds will go towards answering these questions, through:
- Purchase of more camera traps to increase our coverage
- Purchase of hair traps so that we can extract DNA
- Cover costs of running the project
It's a tremendously excited time to be studying martens in the vast North York Moors forests, and we hope you will be a part of it...
