Our first task is to install the newly purchased hedgehog homes ordered over Christmas. Over 90% of British hedgehogs have disappeared mainly the result of loss of habitat. This is an appalling statistic that we must redress. To start we have bought 3 shelters sponsored by The Natural Pet Centre in Heswall

This aesthetic dome of which there are 2 will be hidden in the undergrowth and be undisturbed. The one below is an observation unit so we can check on its occupation. This will be placed away from the public areas as a reseach tool.
It is hoped over the next few years that we will position more of these around the gardens. (If anyone is interested in sponsoring a home please get intouch with a member of the Wilder-Ness team.)
