Spring Appeal 2019

Help us to better understand hedgehog mortality

A study* released in September last year indicated that the number of hedgehogs living in the British countryside has plummeted by more than half since 2000. Historical hedgehog numbers are hard to estimate, but scientists think populations have fallen by at least 80% since the 1950s. Gardens can provide a much-needed refuge for hedgehogs but it is essential that we understand what is driving their declines. UFAW has supported the Garden Wildlife Health (GWH) Project which monitors trends, investigates emerging disease threats to garden wildlife, promotes best practice to help safeguard the health of our garden wildlife and spreads the word about its findings.

As part of UFAW’s ongoing support, we’d like to be able to assist with a separate GWH study into hedgehog mortality, to give a better understanding of why hedgehogs are dying and what is killing them. The study cannot commence until the funding has been secured, please help by sending a donation - your support will help to fund this study and will make a difference. Should funds exceed the amount required for this initiative, UFAW will apply funds to other animal welfare projects. Thank you.
