My other passion
In 2020 I became chair of Central Borders Red Squirrel Network - Under the umbrella of "Saving Scotland's Red Squirrels" (run by the Scottish Wildlife Trust), we are a group of volunteers working in the Central Borders area.
The project is working with local communities to ensure red squirrels will always be a part of Scotland’s special native wildlife. Together with partners, landowners and a network of local groups and volunteers, we are focused on the areas where red squirrels are most under threat from the spread of the invasive grey squirrel.
Our efforts are making a difference — in many places, red squirrels are already making a comeback. However, there is still a lot of work to do. With your help, we can continue to protect them.
