We are a small group of people trying to conserve red squirrels in the Sedbergh area. Our aims are to raise public awareness of the difficulties facing red squirrels and to encourage more people to become involved in helping them. Wildlife—friendly tree planting at Low Branthwaites — Click here for the story. Unlike the greys, red squirrels are native to the British Isles. They arrived here several thousand years ago, at the end of the last ice age when there was a land bridge across what we now call the English Channel. As the ice cap and tundra gave way to the mixed woodland that was to cover most of the land, the red squirrels moved west and north, exploiting the new habitats created by the advance of the forests.
Animal Rights Group Launches Campaign To Help Save Grey Squirrels From Cull
Squirrels are active all year round and do not hibernate. Dreys are usually located in the fork of a branch tight against the tree trunk, around two-thirds of the way up the tree. Red squirrels will usually have more than one drey and have often been observed moving their kits from one to another. In more fragmented landscapes such as agricultural and suburban areas, they exploit pockets of trees and woodlands connected by hedgerows and other wildlife corridors.
One of the UK's leading animal rights organizations has launched a postcard campaign to help save grey squirrels from being culled. Members of the public will send Animal Aid 's pre-written postcards to local Wildlife Trusts throughout the UK who are part of the grey squirrel culling initiative, Red Squirrels United, asking them to withdraw their support of the cull. According to the group: "The text on the postcards will encourage the Wildlife Trusts to explore alternative methods of helping red squirrels, instead of culling grey squirrels.
