Shaftesbury Hedgehog Group

We came together late in 2020 as people keen to conserve the local hedgehog population, aiming to make Shaftesbury a hedgehog-friendly habitat and expand their ranges. We will be collaborating with the Dorset Hedgehog Project (supported by the Dorset Mammal Group) and with Shaftesbury Homegrown who aspire to be a wildlife-friendly site. We're inviting more people to join us for local awareness-raising, possibly  with a public event  encouraging hedgehog-friendly gardening and food growing. There's also an opportunity to help rescue and rehabilitation of injured or underweight hogs.
