We’re delighted to announce that our team have successfully released our first rehabilitated hedgehog back into the wild!
Idris was found wandering in the middle of a busy road by a concerned member of the public. When he arrived at our Hedgehog Rescue, also known as ‘Prickly Hedge Lodge’, he was extremely weak, dehydrated, severely underweight and was unable to stand up without swaying.
Despite a difficult start in life, Idris responded well to treatment and has now been released back into a safe area with supported feeding and housing to help him find his feet, until he is ready to venture out in his own time.
Although our team will miss this cheeky little character, we’re so pleased to see him healthy and are confident that he’ll thrive in the wild.
Please donate towards this amazing project and support our charity as we continue to save our precious hedgehogs.
