Endangered squirrel of north carolina

The northern flying squirrel is found in the southern Appalachians, they are endangered due to humans cutting down their homes and disturbing their areas they live on, plus people sometimes kill them for food. Groups of people are taking matters into their own hand by collecting the species and mating them and keeping them in a safe environment until their population grows.
