We have the fourth of our charities to book a table at #TEAMEARTH Conservation Day 2019 ~ Hedgehog Rescue !!

No automatic alt text available.

Hedgehog Rescue is a voluntary group of individuals who care for sick, injured and orphaned hedgehogs, within our own homes in the West of England, covering  South Gloucestershire., Bath, Somerset & Bristol.  

Co-ordinated by Yate-based carer Yvonne Cox, hedgehog carers look after the animals in their own homes, with many funding their own work.  But some carers have so many hedgehogs to look after, they need financial support, so the money raised from talks, adoptions, donations and sales go to help the carers pay for food, cages and medications etc.

 

Many hedgehogs are killed and injured every day in Britain. As well as the pain and suffering these animals endure, many young babies are left orphaned and have to be hand-reared before release. As well as the road kills every year, humans are also responsible for many hedgehog deaths and injuries through the irresponsible disposing of litter, habitat destruction and the use of garden tools & chemicals.

Through education and awareness, Hedgehog Rescue hopes to encourage the public to consider the consequence of these actions and consider the implications to hedgehogs and other wildlife.
