Rewilding – Pine Martens could help save Red Squirrels
New video for a new playlist!
The European pine marten (Martes martes), known most commonly as the pine marten in Britain, and less commonly also known as pineten, baum marten, or sweet marten, is an animal native to Brirain and Northern Europe belonging to the mustelid family, which also includes mink, otter, badger, wolverine and weasel.
Rewilding is large-scale conservation aimed at restoring and protecting natural processes and core wilderness areas, providing connectivity between such areas, and protecting or reintroducing apex predators and keystone species. Rewilding projects may require ecological restoration or wilderness engineering, particularly to restore connectivity between fragmented protected areas, and reintroduction of predators where extirpated.
