Please have a look at some of these links to find out more about the fantastic charities and campaigns that are helping Hedgehogs to survive.
- LAWNMOWERS and STRIMMERS: Something as simple as checking the grass before you cut your lawn can help Hedgehogs and could save our lives. Strimmers are a nightmare, I’ve learnt to avoid them but many Hedgehogs and Hoglets are amazed and killed every summer and we just can’t protect ourselves against fast metal blade, not even with our spines of steel.

Hedgehog Street is a fantastic site which was developed after information from The State of Britain’s Hedgehogs report which proves that Hedgehogs have declined by 25% in 10 years.
It includes both funded research projects and an exciting public participation campaign – Hedgehog Street is aimed at encouraging people to help Hedgehogs by continuing hedgehog-friendly gardening practices and promoting Hedgehog awareness in local communities.
