Leicestershire Wildlife Hospital – October 2020

Now that the hedgehog has been listed as vulnerable to extinction in the UK, we are calling on the Government to move hedgehogs to Schedule 5 of the Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981 to allow them greater protection.

This change will mean hedgehogs will be afforded greater protection and hopefully help their numbers to recover. 

With so many hedgehog fans amongst us, can you help the British Hedgehog Preservation Society by signing their latest petition to help protect dwindling numbers in the UK, https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/550379.
