Red Squirrel Awareness Week aims to highlight their plight and celebrate the wonderful work of volunteer groups, organisations and projects striving to save them. During this week, there are activities and events planned by a variety of these important groups and projects in different areas of the UK. The red squirrel population in the UK has been declining for centuries, and it is estimated that there are just 120,000 red squirrels left in the UK today.
