There are more than 100 species in danger in the U.K. Hedgehogs are endangered because of habitat destruction , pollution and dangerous traffic . There are 25% fewer hedgehogs now than there were 10 years ago . Hedgehogs are nocturnal , so they sleep during the day . At night , they go out find food . They sometimes walk more than 3 km in one night !
Our hedgehog garden is in quiet corner . It`s got a woodpile and a shallow pond . There are lots of different flowers and plants , and a wild corner with weeds . We’re sure that there are plenty of places for hedgehogs to sleep and hide .
We helped plant the flowers seeds and we made hedgehog houses . We’re going to make some bat boxes , too . We think that they will be cosy winter homes . We hope that the animals will like them!.
