Event description

Description

The pine marten is one of Britain and Ireland’s rarer carnivores that is now recovering in Ireland and Scotland and subject to population reinforcement in Wales. One constraint affecting populations is the scarcity in modern woodlands of elevated, insulated den sites in which pine martens prefer to rest and breed. Purpose-built artificial den boxes have been developed, tested and refined in Galloway Forest since 2003. Their frequent use by pine martens for breeding and resting has informed their deployment in many other areas of Britain and Ireland.
