We need your help!
To all our hedgehog lovers,. We all know the importance of gaps in fences and under gravel boards to allow hedgehogs to roam freely and find food and, when the mood takes them, a mate! With more and more Green belt being swallowed up by new housing developments the hedgehog’s territory is being seriously eroded and they need our help.
You can do this by clicking on the link below and signing the petition asking that Hedgehog Highways be a legal requirement on new housing estates. Please also share it with your friends, family and work colleagues.
Ban the sale and use of poisionous slug pellets containing metaldehyde, keep ban on methiocarb in the UK.
Why is this important?
These pellets kill hedgehogs, birds, amphibians and pets and poison children if eaten. Hedeghogs eat the slugs and die. Cats and dogs have been killed eating these pellets. Children can also be harmed if they eat the pellets. Hedgehogs are likely to be extinct within 15 years. Slug pellets only kill 10% of slugs and there are slug pellets available that only kill slugs. Hedgehogs are a natural predator of the slugs. We need to do all we can to prevent their extinction.
