It is estimated that in the 1950’s there were 30 million hedgehogs in the U.K.  Research undertaken in 1995 suggest that there were then only 1.4 million and the most up-to-date research indicates that hedgehog numbers continue to decline, with a concern that they could become extinct.

As one of the largest hedgehog rescue centres in the country, Prickles Hedgehog Rescue is working towards contributing to the prevention of this decline, by rescuing, rehabilitating and returning to the wild injured, sick, and at risk hedgehogs. They have released over 3500 hedgehog back into the wild and are currently caring for 190. We invite you to come and hear the story of Prickles and about the work they do with these amazing little wild animals.
