The project aims to raise money for wildlife camera traps which can then be placed in the forests. These special cameras trigger when animals pass in front of them, snapping a picture and can work 24/7 for months on end.
The pine marten has never been officially recorded alive in Yorkshire, although there are regular sightings. A dead pine marten was discovered here in 1993.
If, as suspected, they are found to be living here it would mean that the second-rarest carnivorous mammal in the UK calls Yorkshire home.
