Create hedgehog highways by making holes in your fence and connecting your garden to your neighbours’.

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!

How can you help?

1) Do something simple that will make a real difference for hedgehogs Pledge to make a hole in your garden fence or wall, then once you’ve done it come and map it on the BIG Hedgehog Map.

2) Learn all about hedgehogs and how you can help them. There is a huge amount of information on this website about these spiny beasts – the UK’s favourite wild animal and a creature that is sadly in trouble.

3) Register on Hedgehog Street and become a ‘Hedgehog Champion’  You can then access loads of free resources that will help you tell your neighbours and friends about hedgehogs, why they are in trouble and what we can all do to help. Over 60,000 people have already joined us.

4) Donate to Hedgehog Street  Hedgehog Street is run by a small, committed group of staff, but it is part of a much wider conservation project aimed at helping our wild hedgehogs. We rely on donations to support this work. Help us fight for hedgehogs.
