Welcome to Your Local Hogspital

In just the last 10 years, hedgehog numbers have fallen by 30%, and there are now thought to be fewer than one million left in the UK. They are disappearing from our countryside as fast as tigers are worldwide.

The once common hedgehog is now under threat from development and habitat loss caused by the reduction of hedgerows and the intensification of our agricultural methods.
