Red Squirrels

One of the most threatened species of mammal in the UK


Here at Trewithen we are proud to be a partner of the Cornwall Red Squirrel Project and have been since 2012. During this time, we have given homes to a number of breeding pairs of ‘Reds’, the offspring from which have gone on to new homes themselves.

We would of course prefer to release them into the garden here, but alas the Squirrel Pox Virus, carried by the greys would kill them. 

We are delighted to welcome a new pair of Red Squirrels to Trewithen, in a newly refurbished enclosure.
