Join us in fighting for the future of the nation's favourite animal. To save hedgehogs, we must understand them, and with your help, we're seeing practical conservation efforts take effect.
Numbers of rural hedgehogs have declined nationally by between 30 – 75% since 2000. However, they are showing signs of recovery in urban and suburban areas. These findings were revealed by our own mammal surveys and supported by the findings of other organisations in the State of Britain’s Hedgehogs 2022 report. With our partners, The British Hedgehog Preservation Society (BHPS), we coordinate hedgehog conservation work across the UK. Join us in the fight to save the nation’s favourite mammal.
