Have you seen a Hedgehog?

The London Wildlife Trust writes….

London Wildlife Trust’s ‘Urban Urchins’ started in August 2017 and is aiming to map the distribution of London’s hedgehog population. This is being achieved through the use of footprint tunnel and camera trap surveys across many of our own reserves, the creation of ‘detective kits’ for the public to use in their own gardens and by asking the public to send us their hedgehog sightings.

We are looking for more parks, nature reserves, allotments and other green spaces who would be willing to put up posters asking the public to record London’s hedgehogs for us. I’ve attached a PDF of the poster, should you wish to distribute any copies. If you could let me know the locations that the posters end up, that would be great.

If you are interested in running some hedgehog surveys in your area, we may be able to offer training, support and equipment, so please get in touch. Hedgehogs can be surveyed from April-October. We can also offer to come and speak about hedgehogs with local interest groups.

You can find more information about the project, including the interactive sightings map, here.
