Scotland’s native red squirrel population is under threat. Non-native grey squirrels out-compete reds for food and in many areas carry squirrel-pox which is almost always lethal to reds.
But, if we continue to work together, we can create a sustainable future for red squirrels in Scotland. Securing their future is our long-term commitment.
Your support is crucial if we are to succeed!
Our efforts were given a real boost in 2017 when the National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF) awarded £2.4 million to support our red squirrel conservation programme which runs from 2017 to 2022. This showed great confidence in our strategy and was fantastic news.
As a part of this award we must raise £40,000 each year to unlock the funding. Every precious gift towards our annual £40k target helps unlock this vital £2.4 million from NLHF.
