Today is a day to celebrate all things hedgehog, and although it’s the hibernation season, there’s still plenty we can do for our favourite animal. Hedgehog numbers are sadly declining, but the good news is that with the right help, local populations can bounce back and thrive, even in urban areas.

With the ongoing UK lockdown, now is a perfect time to get out into the garden. Small changes in the garden make a huge difference for hedgehogs. If you’re not sure where to start, have a look at our three-part guide to Wildlife Gardening for Beginners. This covers plants, features and added extras for making your garden a hog haven!

Features like hedgehog highways and wildlife areas will benefit not only hedgehogs, but other species too. Give it a go this National Hedgehog Day!
