Hedgehog Awareness Week

Hedgehog Awareness Week
2nd – 8th May 2021

Sadly the UK’s favourite spiky little mammal is in serious decline. Loss of habitat, the use of pesticides, and impermeable fencing are all negatively impacting populations.

This year the Charity is asking people create their very own hedgehog haven! How people can help, Britain’s only spiny mammal...

Can you help create a Wilder Future for them?

If you have a hedgehog in the garden, you can help it out by putting down a little cat food and leaving a pile of leaves or logs for it to hibernate under. Also, don't forget to check your bonfire before you light it! Whether you live in town or country, you can help to look after garden wildlife by providing food, water and shelter.

BHPS Chief Executive, Fay Vass, said
“Our gardens take up such a lot of habitat, and by each making our own plot more hedgehog friendly, we can improve a huge amount of habitat for them. If you don’t have a garden yourself, you can still help by contacting public space managers, neighbours, family and friends to ensure they are all doing their bit. We urge everyone to become a Hedgehog Champion for their area at Hedgehog Street – a project run by BHPS and our partners People’s Trust for Endangered Species.
