UK hedgehog population has fallen by 97% since the 1950's.
Sadly this is part of a wider trend that has seen half of the world's wildlife disappear in just 40 years!
On Monday 11th April 2016, between 19:00hrs - 21:00hrs BST, we are arranging a tweet storm to #HelpHedgehogHospitals. Hedgehog rescue centres are the unsung heroes on the front-line in hedgehog conservation, and are often struggling in terms of funding and support. To compound the problem, these amazing volunteers often simply don't have the time or funds to advertise and raise awareness of their activities.
This is a chance for everyone to raise awareness of these vital local centres and the incredible work that they do. The online event will also serve to highlight other areas of hedgehog conservation, including simple ways in which everyone can help hedgehog numbers recover in the UK.
Unfortunately, at present, there is no comprehensive and managed list of UK hedgehog rescue centres, which is easily accessible to all . To find and help your local hedgehog hero rescue centre, it seems best to google " hedgehog rescue" followed by your nearest town or city!
If you find a hedgehog that is in need of care, please call 01584 890801 to find your local hedgehog rescue.
Thank you so much for your interest. If you would like to get involved in this online Twitter event, then please copy and issue the following tweets on Monday 11th April 2016, between 19:00hrs - 21:00hrs BST. Also, please find
