Detailed Information:
The Friends group was set up in 1999 by Anglesey residents who wished to assist in the conservation of the islands small red squirrel population.

Two years earlier, Menter M™n and the EsmŽ Kirby Snowdonia Trust started a programme of grey squirrel control in order to try and safeguard the remnant red squirrel population. The Friends wished to galvanise local community support for this campaign and also to raise the profile of the red squirrel's plight.

We aim to raise local awerness of red squirrel conservation, and to encourage people to actively support campaigns on issues relating to red squirrels.
