A problem of Mustela lutreola: Reasons of disappearance and conservation strategy

, : A problem of Mustela lutreola: Reasons of disappearance and conservation strategy. Zoologicheskii Zhurnal 75(9): 1394-1403, Sept

By now the European mink has completely disappeared in most European countries and its resources have been drastically decreasing in Russia. The total population size of the species does not exceed 34-42 thousand specimens. The data collected prove that the number decline of the European mink takes place independently of the presence of the American mink in the same area. Strong anthropogenic press on habitats of the species disturbing physical-chemical characteristics of the environment should be considered as the most important factors which leads to its disappearance. The strategy of conserving the European mink should include well-organized accounting works, differential approach to hunting in the biotopes inhabited by semi-aquatic mammals, creating a net of reserves and intensifying research on biology of the species in zoos and fur farms.
