Hedgehog Tunnels & Homes Introduced at Green Park

Once a common sighting and now a rarity within UK gardens, parks and hedgerows, hedgehogs are on a rapid decline due to habitat destruction and water deprivation. It has been suggested that hedgehog numbers have declined by over a third between the years of 2003 and 2012.

Here at Green Park we are enhancing our habitats to encourage as much biodiversity as possible, hedgehogs being one of many small mammals on-site we would like to encourage. Our Biodiversity Team have introduced hedgehog tunnels and homes to three locations around the Park which will help us to survey the current population of these small, elusive creatures on-site.

Keep a look out for further updates on this biodiversity project.
