The map above shows London’s hedgehog distribution. Each borough is distorted by the relative size of its population of hedgehogs.
It also has these tips to help London hedgehogs:
- Make a small hole in your garden fence (assuming you own a home with a yard) so that they can easily fit through.
- Improve this map by sharing your sightings with GiGL.
- Learn more about the plan to create the Greater London National Park.
The map was created by Ben Hennig for Greater London National Park, essentially a plan to turn London into a National Park. Their website states:
