The aims of the Ring of Gullion and Cooley Red Squirrel Group are:
1. To protect and help maintain the population of red squirrels in the Ring of Gullion and Cooley area.
2. To provide whatever assistance possible to enable them to thrive.
In furtherance of these aims, the group intends to raise public awareness of the plight of the Red Squirrel and to educate and encourage young people in conservation of the “Reds” throughout the Ring of Gullion and Cooley area.
We need help from anyone who sees a squirrel, grey or red even if it is road kill. This shows the group areas where squirrels are being killed. Land owners can also help if they find any greys or reds on their grounds. Everyone can help us by letting the group know about it their sightings by using the links to the left.
