Tollymore Red Squirrel Group

Tollymore Red Squirrel Group

The Tollymore Red Squirrel Group was formed in 2004 with the aim of preserving and increasing the population of red squirrels in Tollymore Forest Park.

A few years later the group was joined by personnel from Mourne Heritage Trust.  The group is dependant on its partnership with Forest Service, who is the landowner of the forests in which it works.


Since 2004 the group has been actively involved in conserving as well as increasing the red squirrel population in Tollymore Park, by supplementing the red squirrels natural food and managing the grey squirrel population within the park. The group is also involved in educational activities with schools and the general public about the plight of the red squirrel, and takes part in various exhibition days and events throughout the year. Members of the group are also involved in monitoring and recording numbers of both red and grey squirrels within the park.
