Hedgehog Awareness Week

Hedgehog Awareness Week 3-9th May!


Ethan S and his family have been up to something very exciting this weekend. The powerpoint and the videos have been made by the Stantons and show them helping a worthwhile cause and how you could get involved too!


Ethan was digging in the garden last week and found a hedgehog that was just coming out of hibernation in the corner of his garden in a pile of old leaves…


So they decided to make a hedgehog house to encourage it to come back and make a safe place for it in their garden. You can follow how to make your own hedgehog shelter in the powerpoint below or by following this video: 


They also bought a spycam off Amazon and in the first night they got some footage of a hedgehog- very exciting! You can see the footage by following these links:


Such fortuitous timing as this week is also Hedgehog Awareness Week! I have also uploaded an article below showing you why it is such an important cause. Please spare a few minutes to read about this brilliant week and why not also protect hedgehogs in your local area while getting crafty as a family!
