Pacific martens (Martes caurina) remain common in montane regions of the Pacific states, yet
their distribution and status on the Olympic Peninsula, Washington, is uncertain. Between 1968–
2008, six reliable marten detections exist; a dead juvenile female (2008) indicates martens were
reproducing on the Peninsula within the last decade. To assess the status of martens, we describe
carnivore surveys conducted from 1991–2008 (n = 223 stations). Additionally, we present results
from three survey efforts we conducted from 2013–2016 (n = 748 stations).
