The Red Squirrel in Jersey

The Red Squirrel, Sciurus vulgaris, appears to have been introduced into Jersey towards the end of the 29th century. Some of the founders were from France, others may have come from England. The Jersey squirrels are particularly interesting because they form the most southerly population of this species in Britain and are now one of the few British populations that do not have to live in competition with the introduced Grey Squirrel, Sciurus carolinensis.
