Pacific Marten (Martes caurina)

While researching the Kuiu Island marten population researchers noted low densities and high over winter mortalities. This led to a temporary closure of the marten trapping season on Kuiu Island in order to conserve the population while further research is conducted to analyze population trends. At the end of the Fall 2010 research season the population on Kuiu Island continues to remain low.
