Wales release new conservation plans for red squirrels

The Countryside Council for Wales have released new conservation plans for red squirrels in Wales including: (1) to identify and monitor populations of red squirrels, including surveying all sites with records of red squirrels in the last 10 years, and monitoring focal sites; (2) to prepare and implement red squirrel management plans for focal sites; (3) to establish community groups to support and join in the conservation effort; (4) to establish and maintain a red squirrel database, and (5) to review the need for research – to assess, for example, the potential impact of climate change on red squirrel conservation. Work to turn the conservation plan into action is being led by the Wales Squirrel Forum.
