American marten is a mammal that belongs to the family of weasels. There are 13 subspecies of American marten that are native to North America. American martens inhabit coniferous and mixed forests. These animals were extensively hunted during the 19th and 20th century because of their fur. Habitat loss (as a result of deforestation) is the greatest threat for the survival of American martens in the wild today. Despite these factors, American martens are still numerous in the wild.
