A study was conducted 40 years ago which suggested a link between climate and when hedgehogs come out of hibernation.
The British Hedgehog Preservation Society and the People’s Trust for Endangered Species are now repeating the study to see if climate change has affected hedgehog hibernation patterns.
They need your help to collect hedgehog records from 1st Feb – 31st August this year.
Log onto the project website to tell them every time you see a hedgehog, noting its location and whether it is alive or dead. Please don’t forget to stay on the look out until the end of August when all hedgehogs should be awake.
