Hedgehogs After Dark

11th May 2020

This summer, discover the hidden lives of hedgehogs…

Welcome to Hedgehogs After Dark, our brand new project exploring hedgehog behaviour in our gardens.

**Hedgehogs After Dark has now finished, but you can check out the highlights on our YouTube channel, and you can always log hedgehog sightings on the BIG Hedgehog Map!**

What’s it all about?

We know that gardens are vital for hedgehogs, but we want to find out how hedgehogs are using them. Knowing exactly how hedgehogs are using gardens means we can help them even more. Whether they’re feeding or fighting, sleeping or swimming, we want to know!

How can I get involved?

Carefully keep an eye out for hedgehogs and tell us what you see. Over the next couple of months, you’ll be able to log different hedgehog behaviours every time you spot them in your garden, or record them on your wildlife camera. You can submit your best wildlife camera videos at the same time too.

Hedgehog happenings

We’ll be exploring different hedgehog behaviours in more depth each week here on our news page, and sharing your videos on social media and our YouTube channel.

What’s the competition?

When you log behaviours, you’ll also have the chance to enter a prize draw for a chance to win an exclusive hedgehog hamper. The winner will be selected at random in August and contacted via their Hedgehog Street registered email address. The prize will be sent out as soon as we’re safely back in the office.
