Each year we treat around 100 hedgehogs. Many of these come to us as tiny orphans and we care for them until they are ready to be released. It is a lengthy process but well worth it. We see these tiny, often spineless, cuties grow into adult hedgehogs and take their place back in the wild where they belong.
Would your school like to name a hedgehog and care for them? It's really easy and in the spring they will be released back to the wild where they belong.
All we ask is for the children in your class to think of a hedgehog name, then write the name on a piece of paper and put it into a box. We ask that the children donate £1 or some cat or dog food or an old towel for each name they enter.
Once all the names are collected, we will pick one out of the box and your school's hedgehog will have that name. We will email the school with updates on how their named hoglet is doing and general information on hedgehogs. We will also bring the hedgehog into the school along with some of our others orphans to show the children and talk to them about the animals.
