Install a hedgehog highway
Hedgehogs can roam between 1-2km each night looking for food, shelter and mates but they can’t get through walls or fences. The easiest way you can help is to install a ‘hedgehog highway’, a small opening in your garden fence about 13cm wide and 13cm high (about the size of a CD case). Try to create as much access as possible, connecting gardens on all sides, and thinking about front and back gardens where possible.
Many of our developments now have hedgehog highways ready installed, so all you’ll need to do is keep them clear.
