Had second thoughts about getting a primary school to have hedgehog homes in a nature area, just worried that at playtime, some children wouldn’t be able to resist looking inside them and might disturb a nest.

Bug hotels aren’t so bad, as kids can look at all the bugs and have a ladybird running about their hand, doesn’t create as much trauma (as they can fly off) to a bug than it does to a hedgehog.

I won’t to help them to understand not to pick up a hedgehog, not to play with it, and to tell a teacher if they see one out in the day, and how litter can be fatal to a hedgehog.
