Introducing the Red Squirrel Project – Free Virtual Talk

Date(s) - 24 Jun 2021 until 24 Jun 2021
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

‘’Introducing the Red Squirrel Project” by Sarah Purdon.

Sarah is the Mid Wales Squirrel Officer for the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales.

The most common squirrel we often see is the grey squirrel. They are native to North America and were introduced to the UK in the late 1800’s and they have been very successful in expanding across the country. But the red squirrel is our native squirrel. Sarah will be introducing us to the red squirrel project in Mid Wales where they are seen in some of the woodlands north of Lampeter. So they are not too far away from Denmark Farm!

We will also find out more about these squirrels with the tufty ears and how they interact with the introduced grey squirrel. You can also find out more about how to get involved with the project locally.

This is a 1 hour talk with an opportunity at the end for Questions and Answers.

Come and find out all about these fascinating creatures by registering your place on

We will then confirm your place and a Zoom link will be sent to you the evening before the event.

The Shared Earth Trust at Denmark Farm Conservation Centre runs a 2 year project called Cadw Natur Mewn Cof/Keeping Nature in Mind which is funded by the Landfill Disposals Tax Communities Scheme. This has enabled us to run these various virtual talks on Zoom.

For all other virtual talks please see our Events Calendar.

These talks are FREE but we welcome donations to help us care for all the wildlife at Denmark Farm.  You can make a donation via our LocalGiving platform. Many thanks for your support.
