Hedgehog Street – Woodstock Rd South, Eaton Rd and Arthur Rd

Welcome to our Woodstock Rd South, Eaton Rd and Arthur Rd Hedgehog Street project page!

We know Woodstock Rd South has a hedgehog population as one was recently found walking along the footpath, in danger of being run over. In order to protect our hedgehogs from cars, and to ensure they have access to food and shelter, we are asking everybody to make sure there is an opening of 13cm x 13cm in their garden fences. That way, our hedgehogs can roam freely between our gardens in search of food, and won’t need to cross the busy road.

When you have made your hole, please register it on The Big Hedgehog Map, so we can monitor how much freedom to roam our hedgehogs are gaining:

We have recently put up this sign on Arthur Rd to encourage people to drive slowly and keep our street safe for roaming hedgehogs, as well as other wildlife.

If you would like to become involved, please email our group co-ordinator Sue Appel at suerappel@gmail.com.
