Where Do Minks Live?


Minks prefer to live near water and they are rarely found far from lakes, riverbanks and marshes. They tend to follow streams and ditches even when wandering. They are widespread in Britain's mainland, apart from the mountainous areas of Wales, Scotland and the Lake District.

Minks are vagabonds. They do not live in one specific spot, but are constantly on the move. They build one shelter, stay in it for a little while, and then move somewhere else and build another one. They do this because they are extremely territorial.A male and female mink will live separately from one another all year, only meeting to mate.

Minks are found all over North America, South America, Europe, and Newfoundland. The American mink has been introduced in many European and Asian countries, which led to the decline of the European mink.
