We have provided some advice under Squirrel Facts, particularly relating to the squirrel pox virus as well as the importance of maintaining good hygiene when using feeders to feed red squirrels.

In addition to this and the Northern Ireland Squirrel Forum‘s (NISF) pages hosted on the Northern Ireland Environment Agency’s (NIEA) website, there are also some well-established Red Squirrel Groups and agencies that are worth consulting online.

Following are some that we would recommend:

The Tollymore Red Squirrel Group
The Glens Red Squirrel Group
Red Squirrels Northern England Group
UK Red Squirrel Group
Northern Ireland Forest Service
Forestry Commission
The Red Squirrel Survival Trust
Scottish Natural Heritage
