Red Squirrels

Squirrel-The Isle of Wight is one of the best and only places in England to see Red Squirrels in their natural habitat.

These beautiful animals are indigenous to the Island and can be found in most woodland and forested areas. But they are also an endangered species and the Island is one of the only places in the country where you will see them. This is because the American Grey Squirrel has now populated most of mainland Britain and it out competes the Red Squirrel for food and passes on diseases. Luckily the Solent has acted as an effective barrier to the introduction of the Grey Squirrel to the Island, and thus the Red Squirrel survives undisturbed.
