Hedgehog Highways - why connectivity is key


Of the many threats that face hedgehogs the most important is the fragmentation of their habitat - and of the many threats that they face, this is the one about which many of us can take action.
Make a hole in your fence, just 13cm across, and talk to your neighbours - make a Hedgehog Street! Better still, ensure all new developments come with hedgehog highways as standard.
Hugh Warwick is on a mission to save the hedgehog,. Come along to an inspiring talk about these miraculous and beautiful icons of British wildlife, and discover the simple things you can do to help save them!
Update 6/3/20: due to high levels of interest in this event, we have moved to a bigger space within the Guildhall. This event is now in The Roysse Room, not the Old Magistrate's Court. There will be clear signage on the day and access is via the step-free door on Bridge Street.  
Saturday March 14 @ 12pm - The Guildhall, Abingdon
Tickets £5 (adult) / £2.50 (child) / free with Festival Pass - buy tickets here
