For numerous reasons we’ve lost a third of UK hedgehogs since the year 2000, and now a campaign; Hedgehog Street, aims to do something about it.

Their website explains it all, but the aim is for members of the public to register for free, then you’ll be provided with a range of tools to help your local hedgehogs as well as help track where you see them to help the campaign get a more accurate account of the numbers. I’ve registered and there are many tools to help so please head over to their site here and get started.

Below are a few tips to get started and a video to help make your garden hedgehog friendly.
