As part of the ECO event at the Baptist Church, Greening Wymondham will be highlighting their work to protect hedgehogs in our area.

WYMONDHAM: A HEDGEHOG HAVEN

For many people the hedgehog is their favourite mammal, many of us can recall seeing them – if fleetingly – when we were children. They are also a gardener’s best friend.

Wymondham is fortunate, there are hedgehogs in our town and if you are lucky, on a summer or autumn evening, around or soon after dusk you may glimpse one when the Hedge Pigs are foraging under hedges and moving in front gardens.

However, all is not good for hedgehogs:

  • Hedgehog numbers are in serious decline.

  • What many people do not realise is that hedgehogs numbers in the UK have fallen so drastically in the last 20 years that they are now officially classified as vulnerable to extinction.

  • Ever increasing road traffic increases probability of roadkill. 

  • In rural areas, intensive agriculture plus larger fields, fewer hedgerows and undisturbed spaces has drastically reduced their numbers. 

  • Suburban Hedgehogs are also threatened by loss of habitat. As our garden fences and walls have become more secure, the barriers we have created prevent Hedgehogs from accessing our gardens. 

However there are plenty of things you can do to help hedgehogs.  Come and check out the display for more on our Hedgehog Haven project along with tips on how to support Wymondham’s hedgehogs.
