Hedgehogs, like many wildlife species, are declining in numbers due to environmental changes in both rural and urban areas, mostly caused by humans. But you can help the urban scene by doing some simple things around your garden. Hedgehogs are good for the garden because they eat a lot of the creepy crawlies that most of us don’t like, ie. slugs, beetles, earwigs, worms and millipedes, to name but a few. But the hogs can’t get at them if your garden is too tidy, or they can’t move freely from one garden to the next.
