Rachael Garside joins the search for one of the rarest animals in Britain, the Pine Marten, which was thought to be extinct in Wales until a dead one was discovered in 2012.

  • On the Trail of the Lonesome Pine Marten

    One of the rarest animals in Britain, the Pine Marten was thought to be extinct here in Wales...but the discovery of a dead one last November, near Newtown was an encouraging sign that they're living in Wales. It's thanks to the 5p plastic carrier bag levy that a 2 year project from the Vincent Wildlife Trust is underway to help this rare native mammal.
