Hedgehogs are in trouble

There’s now fewer than 1 million hedgehogs thought to be left in Britain. That’s a staggering 20 million drop in their numbers since 1950, mainly due to the over-tidying of parks and gardens, removal of hedgerows, use of chemical pesticides, loss of green space to development and road casualties.
