    Amazing! Look at the mink :-O (L). Djeez imagine how little of such huge estuaries exist in Europe that can still sustain such a re-established european mink population away from american mink :-/.
    If this is what suits the species it has few and isolated options in Europe: Romania, Estonia, Poland, Belarus, France, Spain?
    More or less viable populations only appear to exist in in Danube delta in Romania, in Vologda and in Arkhangelsk Region in Russia.
    Does anyone knows if these reintroductions require new releases yearly?

    Great report, provides a great overview of the mammals around and your dedicated and skilled efforts

    Populations in Vologda and Arkhangelsk don’t appear to be viable 🙁

        Depends on your definition of success. European mink was introduced to two of the Kuril Islands (just N of Hokkaido) many years ago; it never became common but apparently persists in very low numbers.
