look good and help collar a squirrel

April 20th, 2015 by nperlut

Our squirrel research lab is trying a crazy model for both looking good and buying radio collars—we are selling super sweet t-shirts.  There is a twist.  We have 10 days to sell 50 shirts–the period ends Tues, April 20.  If we don’t sell 50, no one is charged, but no one gets the shirt.  $4 from each sale comes back to us to buy a radio collar.  Please share with your friends, your kids and other wildlife that might like one.  Give the squirrels (and students) some love!




Squirrel week!

While we here at the UNE Project Squirrel know that every week is squirrel week, Washington Post reporter John Kelly has declared this week squirrel week.  Here is a link to a sweet story by Kelly including an epoch video of a red-tailed hawk chasing a grey squirrel.

2 squirrels in a tree

Squirrelologist Andrew Diorio snapped this rare late-February shot of two collared squirrels sunbathing in a tree at the same time–1 male and 1 female.  Breeding season is here and love is in the air!  And yes I know the picture needs rotating….for some reason I can’t do it.
