Landowners

If you are in the South West area and would like to join our grey control network or need help/support with your population please get in touch!

Charles Dutton & Co have been working with Exmoor National Park and Red Squirrel South West on an exciting new project on the north coast of Exmoor. The project, instigated by ENP is looking at removing grey squirrels from the area, which in turn will help to regenerate the natural Sessile Oak woodland of the area, and ultimately lead to the re-introduction of red squirrels back to Exmoor. Charles is an extremely experienced forester who specialises in clearing greys from woodlands and protecting timber harvesting from their damage. He can provide advice to landowners who may be struggling with grey squirrels on their land.

Education

Introduce red squirrel conservation to your classes with the Red Squirrel Education Pack.

The Red Squirrel Education Pack has been created to raise awareness of the plight of the native British squirrel and of the conservation efforts to help them regenerate. Suitable for KS2 classes, the Red Squirrel Education Pack is a cross-curricular resource designed to last a teacher a half-term with exciting and stimulating activities in Science, Mathematics, Geography, Home Economics, English, Music, Art, Public Speaking and Drama.

The Red Squirrel Education Pack was written by Olivia Kennaway who grew up at Escot Park in Devon where there is a Red Squirrel Enclosure for conservation purposes. Olivia created the Red Squirrel Education Pack initially for her final major project in her Photojournalism and Documentary Photography Degree; the striking photography of red squirrels in the pack is all her own work.

To find out more about the education pack visit their website.
