Red Squirrels Trust

The Brief

Anglesey now contains the largest single population of red squirrels in Wales. A dynamic partnership between landowners, community groups and local volunteers is working to improve woodland habitats, erect nest boxes, provide supplemental feeding and monitor populations. In 2012 red squirrels will be reintroduced to the Llangefni Dingle and we will begin a new chapter – an extensive cull of grey squirrels in Gwynedd that we hope will see red squirrels return to Bangor and the surrounding district.

In a bid to help save the beloved species, Red Squirrels Trust Wales asked Livetech to create the Squirrel Location Map which enables users to keep track of the native creatures. The app enables you to submit your sightings of the native red squirrel and lets people engage with the trust, share and find out more information on the loveable creatures and their history.
