Save the Red Squirrels
With Northumberland Wildlife Trust
Red squirrels are an iconic species in the UK, but unfortunately, they are endangered and at risk of extinction due to a combination of factors, including habitat loss, disease, and competition from non-native grey squirrels. The population of red squirrels in the UK is estimated to be less than 140,000, while the population of grey squirrels is estimated to be over 2.5 million.
It is important to help red squirrels in the UK because they play a crucial role in maintaining the health and diversity of our forest ecosystems. Red squirrels are important seed dispersers and help to maintain the health of forests by reducing the population of pests and insects that can harm trees. They are also a cultural icon and a beloved species for many people in the UK. By supporting organisations like the Northumberland Wildlife Trust, we can help to protect and conserve this important species and ensure that our forest ecosystems remain healthy and vibrant for generations to come.
