Wanted! Volunteers to help red squirrels
Do you want to help red squirrels?
The red squirrel is the UK’s only native squirrel species and was once widespread across our islands. Red squirrel populations have declined since the introduction of the grey squirrel in 1876, and it is now thought there are less than 140,000 red squirrels left in the wild.
Red Squirrels United is the biggest ever partnership of academics, practitioners and volunteers. They are working together on a scientifically robust programme of red squirrel conservation. They are focusing on 9 main areas of squirrel populations across Northern Ireland, England and Wales.
