Report submitted to Doug B. Ransome and Bob Gunn. Report submitted by Cameron Stooshnoff and Andrew Klassen May 12, 2004. The eastern grey squirrel (Sciurus carolinensis) population has been increasing in the lower Fraser Valley, as far east as Abbotsford. Few studies have examined the relationships between the native northern flying squirrels (Glaucomys sabrinus) and Douglas squirrels (Tamiasciurus douglasii), and the introduced eastern grey squirrels, in the Lower Mainland. The purpose of this project was to determine; if Douglas squirrels and northern flying squirrels were abundant in the Park; and if they have been negatively influenced by the increase in abundance of eastern grey squirrels.
