The hedgehog: a protagonist of fables, legends and bestiaries, but also one of the most recognisable wild animals of our fauna. Virtually everyone has seen one hidden among the bushes of private gardens or, in more unfortunate cases, as roadkill. Paradoxically, and despite this widespread familiarity, hedgehogs are still pretty much unknown.
One of this portal's objectives is precisely to provide basic information on both species, while contributing to their conservation and the study of their range, which has not been well characterised yet. To do this, we use encounters with living or dead animals, inevitably found by nature lovers, but often forgotten or lost. Therefore, this initiative should be seen as a collective effort. We have a place and a task for everyone who wishes to participate.
We now have 65 participants and have collected over 1,000 encounters. Thank you, everyone!
