Pupils from local primary schools have been meeting CRST volunteers online to learn about the red squirrels in Clocaenog forest.

Lots of sightings of red squirrels on the latest camera checks. In one week on 7 cameras there were 93 images of red squirrels and 7 of grey squirrels.
Natural Resources Wales has reopened its forests and our volunteers are happy to be back checking cameras again. The red squirrels have been managing well without us as we’ve seen a few young squirrels around. Sadly there are quite a few greys about too so we can’t be complacent.
Volunteer activity has been suspended for the time being. We’re all missing being out and about in the forest checking on the red squirrels. We’re hoping they are busy producing the next generation to boost the population
