Here is a couple of photos of an American Marten taken by one of the wildlife cameras in the Cape Breton Highlands National Park.

UINR’s Unama’ki Guardian Coordinator Keith Christmas, with Unama’ki guardians, helped Parks Canada with this project last year. In March 2016 we set out eight trail cameras at various locations across the Highlands plateau to determine the presence of tagged Coyotes, American Marten, and Canada Lynx.

These photos were taken in late March or early April 2016. The bait had been removed by a collared coyote a few weeks before so there was little to keep him hanging around. The map shows the location of the camera.
