Help a Hog

When was the last time you saw a hedgehog?

Can you remember when you last saw one of these snuffly creatures? Despite being one of the UK’s best-loved mammals, these once-common garden visitors are disappearing from under our very nose.

We've partnered with our friends at Spike's Hedgehog Food to get an idea of how hedgehogs are faring across Lancashire, Manchester and North Merseyside.

Spike's Hedgehog Food is specially formulated to help keep your local hogs healthy

We'd love it if you could fill in the short form below to tell us when you last saw a hedgehog in our region. As a thank you, we'll send you a handy guide to small but powerful changes you can make for local hogs where you live.
