Hedgehog Way: Report Sightings

Hedgehog Way

Report Sightings


Hedgehogs used to be a familiar and well-loved visitor to our gardens, but with a startling 95% decline since the 1950's, and a continued decline of 30-40% over recent years, will the hedgehog still be around to surprise and delight our children and our children's children?

With funding from Peoples Trust for Endangered Species (PTES) and British Hedgehog Preservation Society (BHPS), Hedgehog Way is focusing on the areas of Charlton Kings and Swindon Village in Cheltenham and Kingsway in Gloucester.

However, if you live in other areas of Gloucestershire and have seen a hedgehog you can still take part by adding your sighting to our online map. This will help us find out where the hedgehogs are across the county.

For more information on how to help hedgehogs, take a look here.

Have you seen a hedgehog, dead or alive? And equally important, we need to know if you HAVEN'T seen a hedgehog!

We need a full name for who has/hasn't seen a hedgehog and location name, like a town or village with a road name. These make very useful biological records.

Unfortunately our online map isn't working at the moment but we are currently working to address this problem and hope to have it back online soon. In the meantime, if you do see a hedgehog and would like to report it visit the Big Hedgehog Map online and report your sighting.
