Hedgehogs!

Writer and ecologist Hugh Warwick will be talking about one of Britain’s best loved animals – the hedgehog. He has studied them, on and off, for over 25 years, has written about them, rescued them, radio tracked them and talked, incessantly, about them. He will be sharing his insights into the madness of the extreme end of the hedgehog lover’s world while arguing that a little bit of hedgehog love in all our lives could be the key to the salvation of humanity. Hugh will be asking his audience to consider whether they have been seeing fewer hedgehogs of late. Because the latest report he was involved with concluded that, conservatively, there has been a 25% decline in their number in the last ten years, and the reality is probably far worse.

His hedgehog book, A Prickly Affair, was widely praised and remains possibly the only book to be published featuring commendations from both Jeanette Winterson and Ann Widdecombe on the cover. Like his talk, it is full of fun and laughter while at the same time carrying with it a serious ecological message about the way we impact hedgehogs and the planet.

So come and join the fun at 7.30pm on Wednesday 26th September at Uplyme Village Hall!
