Radiotracking hedgehogs in the Norfolk countryside: cutting edge research funded by BHPS and PTES
How do we know what hedgehogs do in the dark? Radiotracking animals is one of the only feasible ways of working out what hedgehogs get up to. PTES and BHPS are currently funding a three year project by WildCRU that is looking at how hedgehogs use arable farmland so that we can better prescribe advice for farmers on how to manage land for this declining animal.

This demonstrates another way in which BHPS and PTES are trying to reverse the fortunes of this wonderful creature in the UK.
