One in three of all British hedgehogs have been lost since the year 2000, and they continue to decline at a shocking rate. Thankfully, people love hedgehogs and there is a lot we can do to help them.
The sad state of our nation’s hedgehogs was revealed by our own mammal surveys and supported by the findings of other wildlife organisations. However with our partners, British Hedgehog Preservation Society (BHPS), we are now coordinating hedgehog conservation work across the United Kingdom. Join us in the fight to save this national treasure…
We run the only UK course on hedgehog-friendly land management, surveying and mitigation for professionals.
To save the hedgehog we must understand their habitats and the threats facing them - and we do this be funding scientists to study them.
Hedgehog are very media friendly - see how we are using television to spread the word about hedgehogs to the nation.
