HEDGEHOG Awareness Week runs from May 3 to 9 and during lockdown you can think how you might be able to help hedgehogs.
Hedgehog Awareness Week is organised by the British Hedgehog Preservation Society (BHPS), which this year is asking people to take the time to think about how they could help hedgehogs, from creating a log pile in their garden to offering shallow bowls of water.
BHPS chief executive Fay Vass said: “With Covid-19 restrictions we are probably all spending more time in our own gardens and green spaces, so it’s an ideal time to make those areas better for our dwindling population of hedgehogs as well as doing something positive, safe at home."
Here are some simple things you can do to help hedgehogs:
