Each of our groups works their local patch aiming to conserve and expand the current population of red squirrels within their local area.  They do this by a number of methods including; educating the public, supplementary feeding of the reds, and removal of any encroaching greys amongst many other important tasks.  There are multiple different roles within the squirrel groups for all levels of skills and abilities.  You learn very quickly lots about red squirrels and their ecosystems.
