Red Squirrels Born In Cornwall
7:02am 7th June 2014
Cornwall welcomes the birth of two red squirrels.
It is as the breed's population is dropping and is even extinct in some areas of the country.
Staff at Paradise Park are hopefull this will help boost number in the Duchy.
It's planning to eventually release them into the wild.
Curator David Woolcock said: "The Red Squirrel has suffered a dramatic population decline in the last century and they are extinct in much of Southern England, Northern Ireland and Wales. These two babies will help establish more breeding groups hopefully within collections in Cornwall, and in the long term we hope they will be released in Cornwall."
"We first got involved in breeding Red Squirrels back in 1996 when we had a pair on loan from the Welsh Mountain Zoo. They have bred successfully ever since".
