Carolina Northern Flying Squirrel

The Carolina Northern Flying Squirrel is found on the high mountain peaks of western North Carolina. They prefer cool, moist habitats. Although this species is at risk to both human and natural threats, the risks posed by human actions far outweigh those by nature. Habitat destruction through deforestation and pollution, as well as the introduction of foreign wildlife, has landed this species a spot on the endangered species list. Forest restoration and protection efforts will help save this species.
