Red Squirrel Conservation Bodies
RSNE is a partnership project working to conserve red squirrels in Northern England. Launched by HRH The Prince of Wales in 2011, the project combines and builds on the efforts of previous and current initiatives to protect red squirrels through targeted and strategic action.
The European Squirrel Initiative aims to create, develop and maintain a campaign to win the support and commitment of governments throughout Europe in securing the future of the red squirrel through the effective control of the grey squirrel.
The Red Squirrel Survival Trust is a national charity established to ensure the conservation and protection of the red squirrel in the UK.
The UK Squirrel Accord (UKSA) consists of 32 leading woodland, timber industry and conservation organisations in the UK. It was created at the invitation of HRH Prince Charles – who had the aim of bringing a concerted and coordinated approach to securing the future of our red squirrels and woodlands, and to controlling the introduced grey squirrel.
Red Squirrels United was the biggest ever partnership of academics, practitioners and volunteers working together on a scientifically robust programme of red squirrel conservation. Their work focused on nine main stronghold areas of red squirrel populations across Northern Ireland, England and Wales. Red Squirrels United was led by The Wildlife Trusts in partnership with Newcastle University, Forest Research, Lancashire Wildlife Trust, Red Squirrels Trust Wales, Northumberland Wildlife Trust, Ulster Wildlife and The Wildlife Trust of South & West Wales. The project has officially ceased, but their website remains active.
British Red Squirrel is a forum for all those interested in red squirrel conservation and grey squirrel control, providing an information hub with links to current activity across the British Isles.
