Home Forums Champions’ chat 38 Degrees Petition etc. Reply To: 38 Degrees Petition etc.


Hi Penny,

I take your point – maybe I’m a bit of a purist – but if Chris Grayling were a true Species Champion for the hedgehog I would have expected him to have identified a need for and suggested a hedgehog crossing sign were needed.
His response to my letter to him on the trap petition was that he ‘wasn’t keen’ on the trap himself, but needed to see how it went – does he mean in terms of wiping out hedgehog populations before he commits to taking action?
Thanks for clarification on Michael Gove’s role – I’ve signed up to the letter through the link.
