Did you know that hedgehogs are now among the top ten most endangered creatures in the UK? We were so sad to learn that this much-loved creature has seen a harsh decline in the last 70 years. In 1950 there were an estimated 36 million hedgehogs in the UK. Sadly, reports last year suggested that had dropped to just one million in 2013, a third of levels at the start of the century.
This decline is thought to be due in part to warmer winters that have affected their hibernation patterns, waking them up at the wrong time of year before there is enough food around. New roads and building developments destroying their habitats may also be a factor.
We at Gardening for Kids passionately believe that the key to reversing their fortunes and those of our other precious wildlife lies in educating our kids: teaching them to look after their own little bit of the world, and to respect and care for the creatures we share our planet with.
If everyone did something to help our favourite spiky pals, maybe their fortunes could be reversed. Why don't you and your kids make your garden into a safe hedgehog haven with our hedgehog care products?
