Surely we all love hedgehogs with cute faces and tiny paws? However, as one might expect they are under threat because of changes in the way humans organise their lives. More and more gardens and some smaller public spaces are being walled or fenced off completely meaning hedgehogs can no longer survive in them. As a consequence we see them less and less in our immediate surroundings.
There is a simple answer, leave gaps in fences, or better still install a hedgehog tunnel. For more details on all hedgehog matters and some videos see http://www.hedgehogs.org.uk
