The British Hedgehog Preservation Society (BHPS) is a registered UK Charity, founded in 1982, dedicated to helping & protecting hedgehogs native to the UK (Erinaceus europaeus).
Through our campaigns, advocacy and educational projects we work to raise awareness of the practical steps we can take to help reverse the decline of hedgehogs in the wild, improve their welfare and safeguard the future of this much-loved animal. We also fund research that provides important new insights into the conservation and welfare of hedgehogs.
We can offer help and advice to those with sick, injured or orphaned hedgehogs and maintain a list of independent hedgehog rescue centres across the UK – if you are concerned about a hedgehog please visit our First Aid page, or call us on 01584 890 801.
