Red Squirrel Survival Trust

The Red Squirrel Survival Trust is a national charity established to ensure the conservation and protection of the red squirrel in the UK. Its specific aims are to:

  Protect red squirrels by keeping reds and greys apart

  Assist the winning reds in areas where red squirrel population numbers have stabilised or are increasing

  Establish new red colonies across the UK

  Fund research to develop a vaccine for the squirrel pox virus and to control fertility in greys

  Raise awareness of the plight of reds in the UK

RSST supports NRS and other Red Squirrel Conservation Groups in the UK. You can become a Friend of RSST or make a donation and as a result, help to save our red squirrels. More details can be found on their web site.


UK Red Squirrel Group

The UK Red Squirrel Group (UKRSG) aims to co-ordinate and raise awareness of the conservation needs of our native red squirrel and the action being taken to deliver this under the UK Red Squirrel Species Action Plan.  The group has an official responsibility to report the success and progress towards this within the overall UK Biodiversity Action Plan but also helps to develop and co-ordinate advice and best-practice on red squirrel conservation issues for landowners, conservationists, statutory officials and the general public.


European Squirrel Initiative

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.
