Chester Zoo is encouraging local residents to Act for Wildlife, by taking part in this year’s Hedgehog Watch. The project highlights the plight of hedgehogs, whose numbers have steeply declined in recent years.
The local community is being asked to survey their back garden (or private green space) using motion-activated cameras. The images captured will enable the zoo to build up a picture of how hedgehogs use green spaces, and the habitat features that are required to help hedgehogs thrive.
Visit Chester Zoo’s website for more information about Hedgehog Watch and find out how you can get involved.
