Saving Scotland’s Red Squirrels – Volunteer Grey Squirrel Control Officer

Saving Scotland’s Red Squirrels are working in partnership with the Annandale Red Squirrel Group to deliver red squirrel conservation in the Moffat, Lockerbie, Annan areas of Dumfries and Galloway.  Together they utilise targeted grey squirrel control to prevent replacement of red squirrels by the invasive non-native grey squirrels. The control is delivered by a combination of project staff, landowners funded via The Forestry Grant Scheme, and volunteers, all trapping grey squirrels in carefully chosen project areas. You’ll be an ambassador for the group and the project, providing support to existing volunteers, staff and partner organisations to deliver the project’s aims across the area. Ideal for a semi-retired or retired person with time on their hands, or someone looking to start a career in conservation and gamekeeping.
