hedgehog projects and surveys
hedgehog street and hibernation survey
People’s Trust for Endangered Species and the British Hedgehog Preservation Society are looking for neighbourhoods to become Hedgehog Champions by making a collaborative effort to encourage hedgehogs in their gardens or communal green spaces. Visit our Hedgehog Street website for a free pack, great pics and further info.
mammals on roads
Wildlife sightings, dead or alive, on the roads can be extremely useful in building up a picture of populations of mammals across the country. Every July PTES ask motorists and their families and friends to record any mammal life they see on a car journey of 20 miles or more, and send it on to us. Long term data can help us spot trends in numbers, such as the decline of hedgehogs since we started the survey in 2001. Click here to find out how to take part.
living with mammals
If you have mammals visiting your garden we wnat to know about it. As well as finding out how many species are where and their numbers, it also helps us to understand how mammals are using the built environment. Every spring we take records from urban green spaces such as gardens, parks, churchyards, and allotments. Click here to read more about the survey, past results and how to take part next year.
hogwatchHogWatch was the biggest survey of hedgehogs undertaken in Great Britain. Its aim was to establish where hedgehogs are present and where they are absent. Click here to read the results.
