The Red Squirrel Trust
The Red Squirrel Trust is an Isle of Wight based charity comprising of a group of dedicated people committed to the protection and survival of our native red squirrels, their habitat and the species that share it with them. We also educate the general public about our native red squirrels.
With help from the West Wight Landscape Partnership, The Red Squirrel Trust produced a free walks guide. The West Wight is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty- and we hope you enjoy your walks and will want to visit the West Wight often.
The walks featured in the booklet were submitted by members of the general public as being their ‘favourite woodland walk’. The Red Squirrel Trust put together the routes based on this information plus local knowledge of rights of way paths and places to see wildlife.
There is a committee of 6 trustees:
Secretary Mrs Jessie Booth
Treasurer Mrs Dorothy Hughes
Legal Advisor Mr Gurney-Champion
Funding Bids Secretary Mr Simon Craddock
Education Advisor Mrs Vivien Hoyle
Honorary Patrons: Mr Chris Packham Mr Shaw Taylor

The Red Squirrel Trust does not receive government – or any other – fundings so money to keep the charity running comes from donations, sponsorship, fund-raising, gift aid and grants.
