Today is not only St Davids Day, it is also Shrove Tuesday also known to many as Pancake Day and many of us will shopping for our ingredients.  The GSPCA would like to remind everyone to think of the produce that you are going to use and please look to buy Animal Welfare friendly products such as free range eggs.

Although the EU legislation has forced many battery farms to improve their standards, chickens that live as free range birds have a much better quality of life.

Hedgehogs struggling through the wet stormy mild winter

Submitted by Steve on 16:11, 23rd Feb, 2022 | 0

All year round the GSPCA help hedgehogs as they struggle to hibernate due to our mild winter temperatures.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “Hedgehogs need the temperature to drop below 5c before they really go into hibernation.”

“As Guernsey experiences such mild winters hedgehogs don’t really hibernate like they do in other parts of the UK and world.”

“This means they have to find food and all they require even through the stormy weather we have recently experienced.”
