Well OK, it’s nothing official or government declared or worthy of time off of work. The photo sharing site Flickr apparently has a blog and has declared it so. What a perfect tie in to Squirrel Awareness Month to highlight the plight of the magnificent red squirrel, particularly in Europe where it is revered and unfortunately in danger of extinction.
The people on my forum have brought up countless stories about the anti-grey squirrel sentiment that apparently is common in Britain due to the threat they pose to the native red squirrels, and I am surprised I haven’t dedicated a blog post to it yet. And that day won’t be today… though I am obviously a fan of squirrels of all colors and creeds, and believe we should work together to see to it that squirrels of all races can one day live in harmony.
But in celebration of Red Squirrel Week, I hereby submit some of MBRS’s finest work. Let’s all hope that raised awareness can help save the cute and sexy red squirrel…..
Enjoy your Red Squirrel Week!
