Hedgehog numbers in the UK are estimated to have dropped by as much as 30% during the past decade, prompting the campaign which will take place during the Wild About Gardening Week, from October 26 to the beginning of November.

A host of organisations are getting involved to promote the week and encourage people to prevent hedgehogs from suffering a further decline, especially during the winter months.

There are many tips available to ensure the safety of hedgehogs; for information visit the blog about how to encourage hedgehogs into the garden.
