Go Wild About Gardens

Connections between gardens matter as much for wildlife as the abundance of habitats within an individual garden. This autumn, Wild About Gardens Week is focusing on hedgehogs’ neighbourhood needs. They travel 1-2km each night, so gaps in fences given them a wider area to forage. So why not get together with neighbours to create hedgehog highways or plan an event!
