The Red Squirrel has drastically reduced in numbers in the United Kingdom. Under 140,000 individuals are thought to be left, approximately 85% of which are in Scotland.
Ideally we would like to see the Red Squirrel back in the wild, and to this end, Pettitts work closely with the East Anglian Red Squirrel Society and some of the babies born at Pettitts have been released into a conservation area in Holt, North Norfolk.
Pettitts have also set aside and created areas around the park to provide a haven for local animals and insects.
Boards can be found within these areas with information about the plants, animals and insects that can be seen.
