Help the hedgehog
The hedgehog needs our help!
Wherever we are, there's something we can do to help hedgehogs.
Urban landscapes are becoming more important to the hedgehog; so the the British Hedgehog Preservation Society and the People's Trust for Endangered Species launched Hedgehog Street, to encourage people in urban areas to join forces and do what they can to help these comical animals.
But wherever you live, you can make a difference.

Join hedgehog surveys
You can also help with surveys - they are vital because they can identify problems with wildlife numbers while there is still time to take action to help them. The PTES has surveys you can join in with, and you can also download Mammals on Roads iphone App.
Finally, if you really want to get active for hedgehogs, there are some more ways you can help hedgehogs here. The most important thing to do is to make sure hedgehogs can get from one garden to a another - they just need a hole that's 13cm x 13cm to get through. Get your neighbours to join forces and give the hedgehogs in your area their own hedgehog highway so that they can get from one garden to another.
