Squirrel Awareness Tip #3

I would encourage joining environmental or wildlife groups, such as Sierra Club or Defenders of Wildlife. When donating, please indicate to them that you are especially interested in helping squirrels. Backyard and park squirrels are far from endangered, so you might want to be more specific. For instance, state a particular species of squirrel you want to save. Here is a list of some endangered squirrels:

  • Carolina Northern Flying Squirrel (Glaucomys sabrinus coloratus)
  • Delmarva fox squirrel (Sciurus niger cinereus)
  • Mount Graham red squirrel (Tamiasciurus hudsonicus grahamensis)
  • Idaho ground squirrel (Spermophilus brunneus)
  • Utah prairie dog (Cynomys parvidens)
