Grey squirrel control appeal

The RFS is working as part of the UK Squirrel Accord to support ground-breaking new research.

We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has donated - You have helped us to raise over £40,000! This is a incredible contribution towards this £1.2 million project. The UK Squirrel Accord Partnership still needs to raise £200,000 so if you would still like to make a donation towards this important research please click the icon below.
