Cre­ate a hedge­hog haven!

YOURS (UK) - - Our Shared Planet -

Leav­ing an area of your gar­den nat­u­rally un­kempt with twigs and leaves can help give hedge­hogs the ma­te­ri­als to build them­selves an all-im­por­tant hi­ber­na­tion nest. Al­ter­na­tively, buy a hog house or make your own, and put it in a quiet part of the gar­den. Leave a shal­low dish of wa­ter read­ily avail­able as hedge­hogs need to drink lots ev­ery night.

For more tips, in­clud­ing how to make your own hog house, con­tact the Bri­tish Hedge­hog Preser­va­tion So­ci­ety on 01584 890801 or visit www.bri­tish hedge­hogs.org.uk
