Sean's Wild Life
Helping Hedgehogs with @hedgehoghugh
I chat to the hilarious (and self described eccentric) Hugh Warwick chatting all things prickle pig on the eve of the release of his latest book, The Hedgehog Book. An ecologist, author and passionate hedgehog advocate, Hugh is spokesperson for the British Hedgehog Preservation Society and possibly the world's only hedgehog stand up comic!
On a serious note, we discuss the reasons for the hedgehog's decline in Britain and what people can do to help. As well as Hugh's incredibly well received petition to make hedgehog highways a standard feature in all new housing developments. It's a fascinating, funny and heartwarming conversation, with some rude jokes thrown in at the end for good measure! There is hope for hedgehogs with people like Hugh in the world.
