Save the Hedgehogs
With British Hedgehog Preservation Society
Hedgehogs are a much-loved species in the UK, but unfortunately, they are facing significant threats to their populations. According to the latest estimates, hedgehog numbers have declined by up to 50% over the past few decades, and there may now be fewer than 1 million hedgehogs left in the UK. Habitat loss and fragmentation, road traffic accidents, and the use of pesticides are some of the main factors contributing to their decline.
Hedgehogs are important for maintaining the ecological balance of their habitats, as they help to control insect populations and are an important prey species for many predators. They are also an important cultural and economic asset for many communities, and their decline could have significant impacts on local livelihoods and economies. Additionally, hedgehogs are a beloved species, and many people have a strong emotional connection to them. By supporting charities that work to protect hedgehogs, we can help to promote sustainable conservation efforts and protect this species for future generations.

The British Hedgehog Preservation Society is a UK-based charity that works to protect hedgehogs and their habitats. The charity provides advice and support to individuals and organisations on how to create hedgehog-friendly environments and promote sustainable conservation practices. They also fund research into hedgehog populations and the factors affecting their decline, and work to raise awareness about the importance of protecting this species.
The work of the British Hedgehog Preservation Society is important because hedgehogs are facing significant threats to their survival, and their populations are declining at an alarming rate. By providing guidance and resources on how to create hedgehog-friendly habitats, the charity is helping to protect hedgehogs and promote their recovery. Additionally, by funding research into the factors affecting hedgehog populations, the charity is helping to identify solutions to the threats they face, and to inform conservation efforts more broadly. The society also engages with the public, raising awareness of the importance of hedgehogs in our ecosystems and promoting ways in which people can help to protect them.
