Prickles and Paws: How You Can Help Hedgehogs
Natural History Live by Katy South
Hedgehog numbers have seen rapid decline across the UK in recent years, the work of charities such as Prickles and Paws is now more vital than ever to conserve this iconic species. Hedgehogs are a gardener’s best friend and there are lots that you can do in your garden and local area to help hedgehogs. Join us as Co-Founder of Prickles and Paws, Katy South shows us around their wildlife garden, introduces us to some of the rescues current residents and shares their stories.
