The red squirrel is a protected species in the UK and is also recognised by government for its conservation importance.

Whatever your interest in red squirrels, we may have an information sheet that can help advise or guide your actions.

As a woodland manager, you may need to consider red squirrels when you undertake woodland management activities. You may also be eligible for grant aid if you undertake management specifically for red squirrels.

Please don't hesitate to contact us for help or support.
