For the first time, a pregnant female of European mink has been recorded in the Salburua wetlands. One of the non-invasive techniques that can be used to control the presence of elusive species is phototraping, consisting of a camera or video that is activated with the passage of any animal. Throughout the spring, one of the technicians of the Interpretation Center of the Ataria Wetlands, Emilio López, placed one of these cameras in a place of transfer of these animals, being lucky enough to obtain the magnificent sequence that can be observed in the video.
