The fortunes of Britain’s carnivores has changed greatly over the last couple of hundred years. This presentation will discuss population trends and the current status of Britain’s carnivores, including Vincent Wildlife Trust’s conservation and research programmes on pine marten, polecats, weasels and stoats.
Did you know a weasel needs to eat roughly one-third of its body weight per day?
Did you know that stoats can take on prey more than five times their size?
Did you know that polecats were hunted almost to extinction in the UK by gamekeepers in the 1900s?
