Garden Hedgehog Survey
This project involves surveying your garden with a footprint tunnel or a trail camera for 7 nights in a row between the start of June and the end of September. The method is very simple and can be carried out by families, schools and even work places - as long as you have a garden to survey. You can take part in the survey, whether you think you have hedgehogs in your garden or not.
Instructions for making and using a foot print tunnel and surveying with a trail camera can be downloaded from the links below. There is also the link to submit your results via the quick online form.
If you know already that you have hedgehogs regularly visiting your garden, you can just complete the online survey form to report on them.
