A once common, native species to Pennsylvania, the American marten disappeared from the state 120 years ago due primarily to deforestation and unregulated harvest. Recently, the Pennsylvania Game Commission began considerations to potentially reintroduce the marten back to the state. A thorough feasibility study was completed and this video highlights many of the findings from this study as well as why this project is important to all Pennsylvanians. To learn more about the marten and the reintroduction project please see the PGC Marten Storymap linked at the end of this video.
