Hedgehogs need our help
With up to a third of hedgehogs having disappeared over the last ten years, the future of this iconic animal is far from certain.
The threats to these much-loved mammals include habitat loss, pesticide use and road deaths.
As a result of their declining population, hedgehogs are listed as a priority species under the UK Biodiversity Action Plan.
Fortunately, there are things that all of us can do to help numbers recover.
