Abstract: A subspecies of ermine (Mustela erminea haidarum) is one of the few endemic terrestrial mammals on the Queen Charlotte Islands (QCI). This subspecies is on the British Columbia Red List, and is classified as Vulnerable by the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC). Its status reflects its rareness on QCI historically, the paucity of mammalian prey species available, and lack of knowledge of its habitat use and population limitations. Competition from an increasing endemic marten (Martes americana) population may be threatening ermine population viability. From 1992 to 1998 we used a variety of inventory techniques, over a range of habitats, to determine QCI ermine distribution and habitat use as follows: live-trapping with Sherman traps (1992 summer; 1993 fall; 1995 spring; 1997 spring); interviews with QCI trappers and residents (1997 and 1998); snow-tracking and track stations (1997 and 1998).
