A study is currently underway to help conserve pine martens in Dumfries and Galloway.
Only 12 of the animals were re-introduced to the area in the 1980s, meaning the current animals are all descended from the original dozen. It's raised concerns over how small the gene pool is in Galloway Forest.
A project is helping conserve pine martens in Dumfries and Galloway.
DNA is collected from the animals to determine how big a gene pool there is in the area.
"The Commission asked us to set up some monitoring, some new monitoring work and it's a combination of hair tubes, which are these funny orange plastic tubes stuck to trees with food inside and that tempts the pine martens to come up and investigate the bait and then they leave some of their hair on these sticky patches and we can send them off to the lab to get them DNA typed."
A new planning application has been submitted for a wind farm development near the Borders village Lauder.
London-based Airvolution Energy Limited want to erect seven turbines on agricultural land at Muircleugh Farm, two miles south west of Lauder. The company previously withdrew an application to put up six turbines at Muircleuch.
After a fresh look at the site, they have come up with a re-sign that involves seven turbines reaching a height of 110 metres.
Airvolution say the 23 Mega Watt development will result in £105,000 a year in local community benefits. Planners at Scottish Borders Council will consider the application within the next few months.
