I have dedicated this page to our very special garden friends whose numbers are rapidly declining and for whom there is great concern both for their welfare and survival. Thankfully for spike (I know totally unoriginal – but it is very late!) and his friends they have people like Anni Nicholls. Anni is our local Hedgehog Carer based in North Devon and she does a fantastic job of taking in injured and orphaned hogs and hoglets and nursing them back to health before releasing them back out into the wild. My wife and I first met Anni in 2011 when we moved home and we started to soft release some of the hogs in her care. You can find ND Hedgehog Rescue on Facebook via their Facebook Page where you can ‘Like’ and ‘Share us’.
The images below are a few of the local hogs in Anni’s care – they are all great individual characters so enjoy :0)
Below is a video from ‘The Big Wildlife Garden’ on how to help hedgehogs in your garden. Happy and Safe gardening :0)
