Details

Fifty percent of our products come from Cumbria, one of the few counties in the country where the native British Red Squirrel can still be found.  The red squirrel is our only native British squirrel but is at serious risk of extinction if population numbers continue to decline.

The main cause of this decline is competition with the American grey squirrel, an introduced species which is larger than the red and better able to survive harsh weather and occasional food shortages. It also breeds more successfully and quickly out-competes its red cousin for food.

To save these iconic creatures, a partnership project called Red Squirrels Northern England (RSNE) is hard at work: monitoring red squirrels, coordinating the control of grey squirrels, raising awareness of the issues and helping to ensure good habitat is available for the reds.  The project won “Wildlife Success Story of the Year 2014/05” in the BBC Countryfile Magazine Awards. 

The project relies entirely on donations and grants. If you would like to help protect red squirrels, please make a small donation when you purchase any Logs Direct product online or over the phone. We hope that you will be inspired to support this cause; your donation really will make a difference.

“Red squirrels are a beautiful creature to see hopping around in our woodlands. They are really loved by people of all ages. Thank you for caring enough to donate.” Nick Mason, Project Manager, Red Squirrels Northern England.
