Mr. Marten - Canadian Geographic Assignment

On Assignment for Canadian Geographic. Pine Marten (American Marten) in Algonquin Provincial Park. Pine Martens are in the park all year but are much easier to find in the winter. Under normal conditions neither sex will allow another marten of the same sex in their home territory, although males will tolerate the presence of multiple females. An average male defends a territory of approximately 1-3 square miles. In the winter this may change due to available food sources. (Photo: Megan Lorenz/Canadian Geographic)
