Pine Marten

Pine Marten

The pine marten is listed as “Least Concern” on the IUCN Red List in view of its wide distribution; large, stable to increasing population; occurrence in a number of protected areas; and tolerance of habitat modification.

The pine marten is listed as “Least Concern” on the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species in view of its wide distribution, large population, occurrence in a number of protected areas, tolerance to some degree of habitat modification, and because it is unlikely to be declining at nearly the rate required to qualify for listing even as “Near Threatened”.

Indeed, the population is stable to increasing, after former steep declines in some of its range.
