January 21 is National Squirrel Appreciation Day in the USA!

In 2021, our USA regional coordinator, Kat O’Lone, adopted Miss Bonnie McSquirrely. In 2022, Miss Bonnie became our official Global Tree Initiative mascot!

In preparation for celebrating this year’s squirrel appreciation day, Kat and Bonnie would love to hear from YOU!

Kat and Bonnie want to learn about squirrel friends from around the globe. Are you nuts about squirrels? What type of squirrels do you have in your country, and what do they look like?

Send your photos, videos, or letters to Bonnie via email:, and Kat will put together an informative video for us, to be displayed on January 21.

Have a look at Kat and Bonnie’s message:



Please share this. Thank you!
