New Monitoring Study

JNCC and PTES are funding a new red squirrel monitoring study to start in January 2005 and will continue for 2 years. The aim is to produce recommendations and costings for an effective red squirrel surveillance scheme in the UK. The study will be carried out by Robbie McDonald (Quercus, School of Biology and Biochemistry, Queen’s University Belfast, Sarah Cartmel (Gwynedd, Wales), Peter Lurz (Centre for Life Sciences Modelling, University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne) and John Gurnell (University of London), and will involve volunteers. More information will be posted next year.
