We, at Prickly Pigs Hedgehog Rescue, are hoping to give hedgehogs a helping hand by not only taking in sick, injured or orphaned hedgehogs but also raising the public's awareness of the plight of Britain's much loved hedgehogs and provide practical tips on how they can make their gardens hedgehog friendly.

 

Hedgehogs are declining rapidly in Britain. Over the past 20 years hedgehog population has plummeted by 30% and in some areas as much as 50% (People's Trust for Endangered Species).
