Red squirrels are an endangered species and this is one of their last English strongholds. 
The main reason for their decline is the spread of the introduced American Grey Squirrel.

Garsdale is part of the "Greenfields Stronghold".  You will be getting details of the new Garsdale initiative..

 
It is important that the local volunteers gather all information on squirrel distribution.
