Who are the Hedgehog Champions?
Hedgehog Street is as much about people as it is about hedgehogs. Hedgehog Champions are the people that make it work – you don’t need any special skills to be one, just a bit of initiative and a love for spiny creatures!
Let’s look at the facts…
- hedgehogs are declining severely in Britain, by 3 or 4% per year
- most people live in towns and cities
- hedgehogs love suburbia – they can be found in their highest densities here
- there are half a million hectares of garden in Britain
- small changes can make a big difference for hedgehogs
I hope you can see that there’s huge scope for each of us to do something for hedgehogs, even if you don’t have a garden.
These are some of the free downloadable resources we provide on Hedgehog Street to help you help hedgehogs.
- put a poster up to raise awareness in your area
- distribute the flyers and fact sheets to recruit your neighbours
- use the template to make a hole in your fence
- use our free slides and notes to give a talk about hedgehogs
- tell us about your experiences by emailing, sharing a video for YouTube, using facebook or the photo galleries
