Charles the red squirrel

Five-week-old Charles is lucky to be alive. After falling out of his nest during bad weather in Cumbria, England, the baby red squirrel was sent to the Penrith and District Red Squirrel Group. There are only about 150,000 red squirrels left in Britain, so Charles is being hand-reared by the charity's leader, Sarah McNeil.
