‘With hedgehog numbers in decline, getting involved is more important now than ever,’ writes Fay Vass of the British Hedgehog Preservation Society. Photograph: Tim Melling/Getty Images

It’s Hedgehog Awareness Week. This year efforts are focused on our “Hedgehog Heroes” campaign. We are asking councils, tool-hire companies etc to place waterproof stickers on to their cutting machines that remind the operators to check for hedgehogs before starting work. Stickers are free of charge to such groups, and we will add those sending photographs of the stickers “in action” to the Hedgehog Heroes Roll of Honour (that can be viewed on the website). With hedgehog numbers in decline, getting involved is more important now than ever.
