Essential Squirrel Populations Have Plummeted in Texas
Squirrel populations have dropped by a whopping 92% at a wildlife refuge in Texas, according to a recent study. The report found that the local squirrel population has shrunk to its lowest size in over 30 years. Squirrels get a bad rap, but they’re absolutely vital to the well-being of so many ecosystems.
These goofy little creatures are crucial to ecological health! In fact, researchers sometimes refer to them as “nature’s gardeners” because they effectively plant seeds and expand forest cover. Sign now to demand the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department continue to invest time, money, and resources into supporting squirrel populations as they recover from dramatic die-offs!
