In November 2015 I launched a campaign to save our iconic hedgehog, which has declined by between 30-50% over the last 15 years.
Following a debate that I held in the House of Commons in November, my campaign has attracted support from The Times, the Daily Mail and the Telegraph to get the Government to take action to save the hedgehog.
In early February 2016, I hosted a Hedgehog Summit with the British Hedgehog Preservation Society, the People's Trust for Endangered Species and two Ministers from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.
On Thursday 11th February 2016, I launched a petition calling on the Government to ensure that the hedgehog is better protected in law. The online petition is now closed (we received over 50,000 signatures!), but you can still download the paper petition below and then return to me at the House of Commons.
