Hedgehog Champion

Location: Various locations, throughout Suffolk

John Ferguson

The aim of our work in Ipswich is to raise awareness about the threats hedgehogs face and promote easy actions that everyone can take in their own gardens, streets and neighbourhoods. We hope to create a network of hedgehog friendly streets and green spaces across the town and better understand the distribution and ecology of this declining species.

Hedgehog champions play a crucial role in building our hedgehog network and are using a range of approaches to link up whole streets of gardens with Hedgehog Highways. From writing letters to neighbours, giving talks, running stalls and conducting hedgehog surveys, there are all sorts of ways champions can get involved.
