On Wednesday 8th May 2019, there’s a two part programme called Saving Britain’s Hedgehogs at 8pm on Channel 5.
The programmes are on Wednesday 8 May 2019 and Wednesday 15 May 2019.
Steve Backshall and Queen’s Brian May are teaming up to save the hedgehog.
Hedgehogs were recently voted Britain’s favourite wild animal – but their numbers are decreasing fast. In fact, they could be extinct in the UK within a decade.
There’s a determined effort to save them.
Three years ago, Brian May teamed up with Anne Brummer, a wildlife expert, to set up Amazing Grace. It’s a hedgehog rescue centre in Surrey.
Only Fools and Horses star, John “Boycie” Challis is also on the programme.
There’s a lot we can all do to help hedgehogs, so please lend a paw and watch the programme.
Hedgehog charities include the British Hedgehog Preservation Society which has a huge network of hedgehog carers around the UK
