In December over 100 SSRS volunteers, landowners and other supporters joined us online to celebrate the end of the project's 'Developing Community Action' phase. The two-day Knowledge Fair featured presentations and panel discussions on all that the project has achieved over the past five years. It was also an opportunity to learn more about the red squirrel conservation work happening across Scotland and beyond; and to look ahead to a future of working together to protect one of Scotland’s most iconic species.
All the presentations and Q&A sessions are now available to watch again on YouTube, including our fantastic film 'The People Saving Scotland's Red Squirrels, created by Keildih Ewan.
