The Elusive Species Survey

We took a survey to of the UK's most elusive species and found that the humble hedgehog is one of the nation's animals that we're starting to see less-and-less of.

The hedgehog also just happens to be one of Sir David Attenborough's favourite species and features in the Armoured Animals episode of David Attenborough's Natural Curiosities.

To celebrate the launch of the second series of the award-winning David Attenborough's Natural Curiosities we decided to build a 7-foot hedgehog in the hope that it would raise awareness for one of the UK's dwindling yet most curious species.

Now Visit It!

You can visit the hedgehog at Bristol College Green from 19th February 2014 and Manchester Piccadilly Gardens from 20th February 2014 which you'll be pleased to know is available for the public to take pictures with!
