You can help Tollymore Red Squirrel Group by reporting any Northern Ireland sightings of red and/or grey squirrels to the Centre for Environmental Data and Recording CEDaR. Follow the link below to report squirrel sightings.

We also would need you to URGENTLY report any injured or sick red squirrels you may come across in the Mourne and Slieve Croob area. Do not attempt to handle them yourself without taking precautions, please




If you come across a dead red squirrel we would appreciate if you would carefully lift it using double or treble layers of plastic bags to protect your hands. Put the body in a sealed plastic box, put the box in another series of plastic bags and put it in the bottom of a fridge. Then thoroughly wash your hands and contact us to report it. There is a scientific study of red squirrels being undertaken at Queen's University, Belfast.
