February 2021: European Mink

European Mink (Mustela lutreola)

Throughout the month of February 2021, FaunaFocus will feature the European mink!

The European mink is a semi-aquatic mustelid, native to Europe and Eurasia. With a generalist, carnivorous diet, this mammal primarily preys on aquatic prey and hunts in specialized wetland habitats. The European mink is considered “Critically Endangered” due to a severely fragmented population and ongoing population reduction of 50-80%.



Create art inspired by the European mink and share it in the FaunaFocus Discord Server or on social media with #faunafocus. Learn about more ways to get involved with FaunaFocus!
