Build a hedgehog home
Follow these simple steps to create a hedgehog hogitat.
Hedgehogs need somewhere cosy to snooze through winter. Make them a hedgehog house!
- All you need is a wooden crate, lots of sticks and fallen leaves
- Make sure it faces away from northerly and easterly winds
- Tuck your hogitat into a quiet, sheltered spot where the hedgehog won’t be disturbed
If you spot a hedgehog during winter, leave some food – like dog or cat food – and water nearby.
Never give hedgehogs bread or milk - it can make them very poorly.
