#AmazingGrace Hedgehog Challenge

We are helping Grace the Hedgehog and her friends as they are in very serious trouble. Grace is one of our rescued hedgehogs and she needs a safe home to be released in. The areas in which we can safely release Grace are dwindling and over the last 30 years we have seen a massive decline in a safe, sustainable environment for Grace and her friends.

This means there has also been a sharp drop in the number of hedgehogs we see each year. Grace and hedgehogs like her are facing possible extinction in the UK in the coming decade and we must do all we can to halt it - but we need your help.


You can raise awareness by taking our Grace the Hedgehog Challenge and helping us in three ways. These are:


1.Spread the word - by taking this challenge and doing a ‘shout out’ to 3 friends to do the same.

By taking this challenge and sharing Grace’s plight with as many people as possible, we can raise awareness and help people to understand her needs and how we are directly impacting the hedgehog population. You can help by taking a “selfie hedgehog message” and then nominating 3 friends to do the same and spread the word. 



Just draw, write or record a simple message about hedgehogs, tell us what you think, why you like them or use one of the facts below and upload onto our facebook page and  twitter feed and then post it on your own social media and spread the word to your friends by challenging three of them to do the same.

Do it at home, at work or at school.

Do it on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or any other social media platforms you have. We need to reach everyone and fast. Grace needs your help now! DON’T FORGET TO USE THE HASHTAG #AmazingGrace so we can re-tweet and share too. You can email us on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
