Hugh Warwick from the British Hedgehog Preservation Society speaks to Maddy Harland, Permaculture Magazine editor, at the 2019 Oxford Real Farming Conference.
Hugh explains how our native hedgehogs, voted the UK's favourite animal, are in huge decline in both urban and rural environments.
Although government policy needs to change within building regulations, we as individuals can also help improve hedgehog numbers by creating accessible habitats in our gardens.
