Track hedgehogs in your garden

The Mammal Society are running a National hedgehog Tracking survey

The Mammal Society in conjunction with Dr Richard Yarnell from Nottingham Trent University and the PTES have published instructions for tracking the number of hedgehogs in your garden and invite everyone to submit their results.

The full details of the tracking device and how to build one can be found here. The results provided will go towards the National Hedgehog Tracking Survey.

We’d encourage everyone to take part so that accurate numbers of the hedgehog population can be formed – this will determine the steps needed to ensure their population levels can be maintained and not, as is feared, decline to zero by the year 2025.
