Thanks for the feedback.
The survey to which I referred was the one that said that hedgehogs were our favorite animal but this also said that only 70% thought that we hound do all that we can to help hedgehogs. This implies that 30% are either indifferent or actively oppose helping hedgehogs. Since the respondents to the survey were probably predisposed to be interested in wildlife, the percentage in the general population is likely to be higher for those indifferent / opposed.
We are fortunate to live in the countryside and our property is bounded by a small river & a solid stone wall bordering a busy road. Thus creating a hedgehog highway is not viable. Most of our close neighbours know about our hog visitors and their properties are either similar to ours or have open access to fields & woods.
I would be happy for the location of our hogs to be recorded on a confidential database but not for it to be available to all & sundry.
Best regards,
