Ullapool kids help save red squirrels

This picture shows Roy Dennis in 2008 showing our group the recently translocated red squirrels at Dundonnell Estate.  Since then, the squirrels have spread far and wide and are now being seen in Ullapool, which is amazing!

Pupils from a school in the far north of Scotland festooned road signs with their own hand-drawn warnings after Transport Scotland contractors took down an unapproved one paid for by locals. The youngsters took action after several rare red squirrels were killed on the roads near Ullapool. Six have been killed on the A835 since the start of December.  Read this article about their campaign in the Scotsman to find out more.  Well done everyone in Ullapool and surrounds!
