North Oxford Hedgehog Conservation Area
Felix was passionate about hedgehogs and rescued several sick and vulnerable Oxford hedgehogs by taking them to Tiggywinkles wild animal hospital in Haddenham.
Working with the British Hedgehog Preservation Society, we plan to identify an area of North Oxford which can become a suburban haven for hedgehogs.
The UK hedgehog population is declining at an alarming rate, but communities like ours can do many practical things to ensure the survival of this enchanting creature. Please contact us if you would like to be part of this much-needed and exciting project, which will build on the learning and the work of the Solihull hedgehog conservation zone.
