HOT WEATHER ADVICE - Help our hedgehogs

Submitted by Steve on 14:53, 19th Jul, 2021 | 0

With the exceptionally warm weather it has been exceptionally busy at the GSPCA.

One of the biggest casualties being effected have been hedgehogs and the GSPCA is appealing for islanders to do all they can to help our prickly friends.

From dehydrated baby hedgehogs to those covered in fly eggs and maggots we have helped 42 hedgehogs since the start of this month.

It is important that wildlife has access to fresh water in hot weather, especially our hedgehogs and the GSPCA is urging islanders to pop a shallow bowl out to help those thirsty spiky friends.
