Saving Scotland’s Red Squirrels is working with local communities to ensure red squirrels will always be a part of Scotland’s special native wildlife. Together with partners, landowners and a network of local groups and volunteers, we are focused on the areas where red squirrels are most under threat from the spread of the invasive grey squirrel.
Our efforts are making a difference — in many places, red squirrels are already making a comeback. However, there is still a lot of work to do. With your help, we can continue to protect them.
This autumn we are calling on people all over Scotland to take part in the Great Scottish Squirrel Survey. Between 21-27 September (National Red Squirrel Week) we want to see more people than ever get outdoors, explore nature and keep a lookout for both red and grey squirrels.
