Coronavirus: advice for visiting Anglesey

View Coronavirus Advice

Anglesey is a stronghold for the red squirrel, the U.K’s only native squirrel species.  These enchanting little animals can be seen in Pentraeth and Newborough Forests, as well as the woodlands bordering the Menai Strait. Anglesey’s red squirrels continue to be the focus of concerted efforts to conserve them and to increase the size of the population.  This is being done through a combination of habitat improvement, awareness raising and work with the local community, and by controlling the numbers of grey squirrels on the island.  For more information visit the website of the Red Squirrels Trust Wales: www.redsquirrels.info
