The Red Squirrel: the impact of invasive species control on a declining mammal: Great North Museum


The Red Squirrel population in the UK is in decline as the introduced Grey Squirrel population continues to expand.

In the North East there is active culling of the invasive Grey Squirrel in order to prevent local extinction of Red Squirrels.

Deborah Brady is investigating the effect of this control on Red Squirrel populations, in particular her research is focusing on the use of a small woodland by Grey Squirrels prior to and during culling operations and subsequent recolonization by Red Squirrels.

Deborah Brady is a PhD candidate at Newcastle University, School of Biology.
