Red Squirrel Gifts
The 21st January is Red Squirrel Appreciation Day, so if you've got a red squirrel lover in your life, or you want to treat a nature lover to a gift that's a bit different, why not give them a red squirrel gift? You could adopt or sponsor a red squirrel, give a red squirrel soft toy, or help with conservation efforts to help red squirrels.

You'll receive an adoption pack, with a personalised adoption certificate, a beautiful wooden keyring featuring a red squirrel, and an exclusive papercraft model of a red squirrel. There's also a red squirrel fact file, a Go Wild activity book, a red squirrel bookmark and two red squirrel postcards and you'll also have details on how to sign up to receive exclusive email updates about red squirrels.
