Conservation of the European mink

The LIFE VISON programme (vison means European mink in French) is a 5 year project launched to save one of the most endangered mammals in Europe, the European mink (Mustela lutreola). It aims at maintaining or increasing the European mink’s population in one of the species last stronghold areas (the Charente river catchment).
