OPAL's national citizen science surveys

Map your Hedgehog sighting
There is a big project run by Hedgehog Street and supported by PTES to map hedgehogs across the UK. Please take the time to record your hedgehog sighting on the map here.
Tip: you have to click on and drag the red marker (in the Peak District) close to your sighting location before you zoom in then gradually get it in the correct location or use the find my location button and it will take the marker to your current location. The satellite button is useful to get the right place once zoomed in. You can browse the map of hedgehog records here where you can also map the holes you have made to permit free movement of hedgehogs through your garden fences.
