Welcome to the website for red squirrel conservation in North Wales
We are firmly committed to dramatically reducing grey squirrel populations in Wales. We want to protect native species and forests which are threatened by the grey squirrel. This includes the rare red squirrel which has been driven close to extinction.
The eradication of grey squirrels from Anglesey has heralded the dramatic recovery of the red squirrel population and is a success we want to build upon.
Together with our partners Natural Resources Wales and the British Association of Shooting & Conservation, we have started an ambitious program of grey squirrel control. We are attempting to eradicate grey squirrels from 165km2 area of Gwynedd and control their numbers in and around the Clocaenog forest on the Denbighshire moors.
There are many people already working in these areas, very often as volunteers. They include landowners, individuals and community groups, all controlling grey squirrels to conserve native wildlife and our woodland habitats. These people are dedicated and share our vision of landscapes without grey squirrels. Contact us if you would like to be involved.
