    have been wondering for a while if it's possible to rehome hedgehogs ?
    we are based in HASTINGS & have an allotment on a large site surrounded by hedges & woodland.
    We have never seen hedgehogs there in the last 10 yrs. We do have badgers, foxes & many birds etc

    thanks for your advice

      Thank you for your comment. Most of our hedgehogs are returned to the locations where they are found. We don't generally release into areas where they are no hedgehogs because they is probably a reason why you don't have hedgehogs therefore releasing them would mean those released may not survive too.
