How YOU Can Help
Itv's Tyne Tees News came around to talk to Carole about the issues Hedgehogs are facing. You can see the news item here. There is a great view of the new cages in the background!
Some of the really large hedgehogs may go into hibernation this month but the smaller hedgehogs will still need to put on weight. The colder weather makes some of the hedgehogs’ natural food become less active and eventually disappears, so putting out extra food for the hedgehogs can be a lifesaver. It is not the cold that will kill these juveniles but the lack of food brought about by the cold so even in really cold weather they will have to continue to forage. Read more here...
Baby hedgehogs (hoglets) will continue to be born throughout this month. If you see the same hedgehog around then it is likely to be a female. They often have regular routes that they follow when they are foraging, so if you see a hedgehog by the shed at 10pm then it may well be there again the next night at or around that time.

Northumbrian Hedgehog Rescue is made up of volunteers who are all enthusiastic about helping hedgehogs, now an endangered species.
Our aims are to further the conservation and preservation of the species, and to relieve the suffering and distress of individual hedgehogs in need.
On this site you will find details of the practical steps we take to rescue and rehabilitate hedgehogs.
Did you know that back in the 1950's there were 30 million hedgehogs and this year it is estimated we have less than 1 million in all the UK? For more information see the PTES website. Help us to reverse this trend so that we do not lose these delightful creatures.
