A project to stop the decline of Scotland’s core red squirrel populations

Saving Scotlands red squirrels

Project topic: Habitats and species


This Red Squirrel Week we’re calling on people all over Scotland to get outdoors, explore nature and be on the lookout for tufted ears and bushy tails for the return of the Great Scottish Squirrel Survey. Report your sightings of both red and grey squirrels between 21-27 September to provide us with a snapshot of the situation.

The project is a partnership led by the Scottish Wildlife Trust and includes Scottish Natural Heritage, Scottish Forestry, Scottish Land and Estates, Red Squirrel Survival Trust and RSPB Scotland.
