Conservation of Red Squirrels

Lead Partner:
Glenkens Red Squirrel Group

Monitoring, conservation and feeding of red squirrels and trapping of grey squirrels. Also associated talks, demonstrations, school visits and outreach work in order to raise community awareness of the challenges faced by red squirrels and how the public can support this much loved species. This project will provide vital support to the Glenkens Red Squirrel Group which has built effective relationships with a range of local land owners and estate managers. This project aligns with, but is separate from, the broader ‘Saving Scotland’s Red Squirrels’ project which will be bringing support and national cohesion to this issue.
