We work closely with landowners and with the Red Squirrels Northern England (RSNE) project. We also co-operate with other red squirrel groups and with conservation organisations such as the National Trust, Cumbria Wildlife Trust, the Forestry Commission, the Lake District National Park Authority, the Woodland Trust and the Red Squirrel Survival Trust. We are a member of Northern Red Squirrels, the umbrella body for all volunteer groups across Cumbria, the Yorkshire Dales and Northumberland.
