One of the most important ways to help hedgehogs is to provide a passage through your garden and into your neighbours, and so on down the road. Hedgehogs can travel up to 3km in one night so need to move around your neighbourhood with ease.
A Hedgehog Highway is a 5 inch gap in a fence or wall allowing access for hedgehogs.
This gap allows hedgehogs to:
* Forage for food
* Meet mates to breed
* Access nesting sites
Why you should get a Hedgehog Highway Surround?
1. Hedgehog Highway Signs look super cute!
2. They raise awareness to hedgehogs' struggle for survival
3. They create a talking point, encouraging others to create a highway of their own and take part in the project
And Keynsham Group in conjunction with Keynsham Town Council are giving away free surrounds to local residents. Contact us today!
If you find a hedgehog out during the day (as this little fella was) then it is probably sick. The British Hedgehog Preservation Society can offer advice and help you find a rescue centre close by: www.britishhedgehogs.org.uk Tel: 01584 890 801
