The Red Squirrel Survival Trust is a national charity established to ensure the conservation and protection of the red squirrel in the UK.
We aim to:
- Protect red squirrels by keeping reds and greys apart.
- Secure the environment in which red squirrels can thrive by protecting the biodiversity of Britain’s native woodlands.
- Assist the winning reds in areas where red squirrel population numbers have stabilised or are increasing.
- Establish new red colonies across the UK wherever feasible.
- Fund research on how to secure the red squirrel’s long-term future.
- Raise awareness of the plight of reds in the UK.
