Red Squirrel Conference – Exeter, SW

Due to the outbreak of COVID 19 and government guidance BASC took the decision to postpone all training courses scheduled up until the end of June 2020. With the restrictions starting to be lifted in different areas of the UK at different rates, we expect courses to start going ahead from the 9th July in England and at later dates in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. All courses will be reviewed on a daily basis and be led by government advice. I would like to thank all our future course participants for being understanding during this difficult period. If your course was postponed or is going to be postponed you will be contacted by a member of staff. The list of current courses are published on the BASC website and are open to booking subject to further government guidance.

Turning The Tide, Red Squirrel Conference is aimed at bringing together like minded groups and individuals working for one goal, but often without knowledge of, or reference to each other.

It also provides an opportunity for people working on the ground in squirrel conservation and control to learn from leading experts in the field, and hear from projects and research nationally. We would also like to raise the profile of efforts to reintroduce red squirrels across the country, particularly in the South West and Wales.

Turning The Tide

  • Our hope for the south west of England, being a peninsular, is that effective clearance of grey squirrels can be achieved, following the example of the numerous volunteers maintaining a cordon sanitaire across the north of England.
  • This conference also aims to dissolve some of the barriers stalling a national conservation strategy, by attempting to develop both personal and inter-organisational connections.
  • We have therefore assembled some of the leading players in the UK to speak on their work to prevent the extinction of red squirrels on our island.
