Event description
Foxburrow Farm: Discover the needs of the hedgehog including preferred habitats, behaviour, feeding and some basic first aid.

About this Event

To be taken as a follow-on course from the Introduction to Hedgehog Course, this course will introduce you to the needs of the hedgehog including preferred habitats, behaviour, feeding and some basic first aid that you can offer if you discover a sick or injured hedgehog or one that is out in daylight.

Course outline: The work of the ‘hogspital’ and charity The importance of a hedgehog in the ecosystem Revision from Introductory: Hedgehog menu; habitat; year; things you can do to help Parasites and wider issues How to tell if a hedgehog is sick When to intervene Handling and sexing Hoglets What more you could do to help 

Hedgehog numbers have dropped alarmingly in the past ten years and we fear up to a third of the UK’s population has been lost.

Handouts will be available, but you may wish to bring a notebook and pen.

Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided and are included in the cost.

For those interested in furthering their knowledge and skills in caring for hedgehogs and putting them in to practice, we run an Intermediate Hedgehog Care course as the third in the Trust's Hedgehog learning curriculum. To register your interest in the next course, please contact us via the details below.
