Once grown up the squirrels will be transported to two sites in Wales to live wild and free, helping form a population to safeguard and expand the species. After efforts to reintroduce pine martens over the last 3 years by the Vincent Wildlife Trust, it is now hoped the red squirrel can out compete invasive grey squirrels from North America to once again become part of lives, eventually being restored across Southern Britain. Find out how pine marten can save our red squirrels on this youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AGgJx6YdbCk
Red squirrels went extinct in Kent in the 1960's and many of us can remember them from our childhood and many areas like Kent once teemed with these beautiful acrobats of the trees. Help Wildwood breed more by adopting one today: https://wildwoodtrust.shop/collections/adoptions
