How Can I Help Hedgehogs?... By creating a Hedgehog Friendly Garden :-)
My name is Linda Cook and I am the founder of Hedgehogs R Us.
After 4 years of helping to raise awareness of the plight of Hedgehogs in my local town, I spent lockdown wondering what more I could do to help our prickly pals.
My first project was born: The Hedgehogs R Us Highway Project!

A Hedgehog Highway is a 5 inch gap in a fence or wall allowing access for Hedgehogs. Other names include 'Hedgehog Door', 'Hedgehog Hole' and 'Hedgehog Tunnel'
These gaps are essential in the battle to prevent the extinction of our endangered spiky friends.
The Hedgehog Highway allows hedgehogs to:
* Forage for food
* Meet mates to breed
* Access nesting sites
Why should I get a Hedgehog Highway Surround?
1. Hedgehog Highway Signs look super cute!
2. They raise awareness to hedgehogs' struggle for survival
3. They create a talking point, encouraging others to create a highway of their own and take part in the project
4. Money from the sale of every Hedgehog Sign is donated to help the rescue of sick and injured hedgehogs
My dream is to have Hedgehogs R Us Hedgehog Highway Surrounds available to buy in every village, town and city in the whole of the UK, but to do this I need the help of each and every one of you!
Imagine if the whole of the UK was one giant Hedgehog Highway!
Please share the link to this page on your social media pages and tag your local councils, councillors, retailers, shops, fencing companies, builders; basically anyone who you can think of and ask them really nicely to consider buying a box and promoting the project.
Feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need anymore information!
With Hedgehog numbers in severe decline and Hedgehog awareness on the rise, there has never been a better time to invest in Hedgehog conservation products.
