Mink Raft Installation

A Mink Raft is a floating device that is used to determine the presence of mink in a certain area.

Click the link below to hear a short, informal interview with one of the Sharpham Volunteers who has been successfully using the raft to prove this existence of aquatic  mammals along the estuary of the river Dart:

Otter spraint has since been discovered on top of this raft which instantly and excitingly proves their existence on the Sharpham estate.

This is important volunteer- led research that can lead to more comprehensive conservation projects in the future
