The easiest and most efficient way to offer financial help is to become a Friend of the Red Squirrel and set up a standing order with a donation.
We also need volunteers to help us with walks, events and delivering newsletters. Please contact us if you can help.
Feeding red squirrels helps their survival and provides hours of entertainment for you.
They need a variety of food, not just peanuts. Hazelnuts, filberts, pine nuts, walnuts, sunflower seeds, coconut and fruit will provide a varied and healthier diet. NEVER feed brazil nuts or fatballs!
Peak activity times are dawn and dusk all year. Squirrels react to sound and movement, so stand still and keep quiet.
Where gardens back onto woods, squirrels are often fed and can be spotted as they travel to and from the garden.
