Artist's Description

The European Hedgehog is becoming increasingly rare in Britain, due to many factors, including habitat loss and climate change. Populations have dropped from 30 million to only 1.5 million over the past 50 years. Because hedgehogs are a hibernating species, their nesting and mating behavior are highly dependent upon seasonal temperatures. The hedgehog is an endearing and unique creature due to its nocturnal nature and its habits of rolling into a ball and using its spines when threatened. To contribute to hedgehog protection by reporting sightings, visit The People’s Trust for Endangered Species (PTES) and the British Hedgehog Preservation Society (BHPS) who are involved in a joint campaign focusing on surveying populations through the summer of 2012.
