Here in Britain, the native red squirrel continues to face an uncertain future. The introduction of the American grey in 1876 has dramatically reduced their numbers – with just 10,000 to 15,000 left in the UK as opposed to over 2.5 million greys – but now, primarily in Scotland and the north of England, conservationists have introduced preservation measures to aid their survival.
