Apparently the Hedgehog Street campaign now has more than 20,000 people signed up as Hedgehog Champions, which isn't bad. There's something about that phrase 'hedgehog champion' that makes me smile, though I'm not sure why.
The 20,000 aren't gold medal-winning hedgehogs, but green gardeners who want to make their communities a little more hedgehog-friendly. And with that many supporters the campaign should begin to make things happen.
The idea is that Hedgehog Street will make the nation's gardens a little more useful as hedgehog habitat. Look at the website for advice on linking gardens, proving shelter, feeding and how to remove common hazards.
