Weʼve raised £710 to Help Save The Red Squirrel Population in The Lake District
- Bassenthwaite, UK
- Funded on Monday, 26th October 2020
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We are a small local group of volunteers in the Lake District with one common goal:
To save our native Red Squirrels and prevent the establishment of greys in areas where Red Squirrels are currently able to thrive.
Our focus areas are: Bassenthwaite Lake and surrounding small villages.
We work closely with land owners, farmers & the local community.
Whatever the weather, come rain or shine (mostly rain in The Lake District), we are always working outdoors in our spare time amongst mother nature.
We respond quickly and responsibly to sightings of grey's reported to our group, we do this because red squirrel numbers have decreased drastically due to the grey squirrels carrying the squirrel pox virus disease (SQPVD). The virus does not affect the greys but sadly is fatal to our native reds.
All of your kind donations will go towards: Squirrel feeders, sacks of feed, trail cameras (including batteries) and wildlife/photography hides.
Your donations also, fund towards fuel for our volunteers vehicles. This means, they can continue to carry out their work, 7 days a week, preserving conservation for Red Squirrels.
We are looking at purchasing a thermal camera, to monitor high density wooded areas.
Please help save our Lake District Red Squirrels for future generations to enjoy!
