The vision of the Solihull Hedgehog Improvement Area (HIA) project is to empower local communities to help their hedgehogs using a mixture of community engagement, citizen science and habitat improvement. Warwickshire Wildlife Trust recognise the difficulties that our urban and suburban hedgehogs are facing and believe that conservation action from local people holds the key to securing the future for hedgehogs in Warwickshire.
Surveys are taking place across the borough to uncover the locations being used by hedgehogs and importantly those which are not. Using a variety of methods including special tunnels to capture hedgehog footprints, camera traps and surveys of garden boundaries, a detailed picture of the landscape for Solihull’s hedgehogs is being built.
For more information about our Solihull Project please contact Senior Hedgehog Officer, Simon Thompson.
Warwickshire Wildlife Trust has been collecting information about the distribution of hedgehogs across the borough of Solihull. The map below details our most up-to-date information about where hedgehogs have been recorded in the last 3 years. If you have seen a hedgehog, either alive or tragically killed on the road then please submit your sightings to us by visiting our sightings page.
