Tuesday, 11th May, 19:30 - Pine Marten reintroduction feasibility study - a zoom event
Join our webinar at to learn more about a feasibility study by the Back on our Map (BOOM) Project to reintroduce pine martens to the woodlands of South Cumbria.
Dr Mic Mayhew will explore the biology of this elusive member of the weasel family and how the British population has changed over time. Mic will reveal all aspects of the feasibility work in the wider context of national efforts to restore pine martens to all corners of the British Isles. We will reveal how ecological surveys are being used to determine habitat suitability and the importance of engaging with local communities in the project area.
There will be the opportunity to ask questions and expressions views.
BOOM is a 4-year project administered by the University of Cumbria with support from the National Lottery Heritage Fund that aims to restore populations of plants and animals that are threatened or locally extinct in South Cumbria. The pine marten feasibility study is being carried out in partnership with the Vincent Wildlife Trust, Forestry England and the Rusland Horizons Trust.
