Hedgehog Highway

Link your garden and help us to create a hedgehog highway!

Ensuring hedgehogs can pass freely through your garden is the most important thing you can do to help them.

Hedgehogs travel around one mile every night through our parks and gardens in their quest to find food, mates and nesting sites. If you have an enclosed garden you might get in the way of their plans.

One of the main reasons why hedgehog numbers are declining is because our fences and walls are becoming more and more secure, reducing the amount of land available to them.

We can make their lives a little easier by removing the barrier within our control by, where possible, making hedgehog holes in or under our garden fences and walls to allow them to pass through.
