Flying High for our Red Squirrels

The Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales (WTSWW) would like to extend an absolutely massive thank you to volunteer fundraiser Michael Cunningham who undertook a skydive to raise funds for our conservation work with red squirrels.

Michael completed this daring feat last summer, but has kept his fundraising page open and we are incredibly grateful to him for successfully raising his current total of over £600 towards the Mid Wales Red Squirrel Project.

We are constantly fundraising to continue and extend our red squirrel conservation work in mid Wales, and we are so grateful for the work that Michael will have made possible. The red squirrel conservation team are currently starting some new work programmes to help us understand how (and why) red squirrels vary in the way they use the forests in mid Wales, and these funds will help us buy a really meaningful amount of extra equipment to do this (such as tags and cameras).

Michael’s fundraising page will stay open for one more month and if anyone would consider making any final donations to help him get closer to his £1000 target by the end of April, we would be so pleased.

We rely wholly on fundraising for this amazing project, so if anyone else is inspired by Michael’s efforts and would like to raise money to support our work (and you don’t have to jump out of a plane!), please get in touch with our Red Squirrel Officer Sarah Purdon on
