Some Wildlife Trusts where there are populations of both red and grey squirrels are carrying out grey squirrel control as part of a carefully planned conservation programme where culling is used as a last resort.
Cheshire Wildlife Trust is a member of The Wildlife Trusts’ movement, but is an independently constituted charity. We work on projects which most benefit wildlife in Cheshire including regenerating heritage meadows, supporting the re-introduction of the white-faced darter dragonfly, and our many other projects to take action for wildlife and encourage communities to connect with your natural areas.
We make these decisions based on what is appropriate to the species that are under threat in our region.
