What the Petitions Committee is doing

Petition Protect the UK's dwindling hedgehog population before it's too late.

Now the hedgehog has been listed as vulnerable to extinction in the UK, we are calling on the Government to move hedgehogs to schedule 5 of the Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981 to allow them greater protection.

More details

This change will mean hedgehogs will be afforded greater protection and hopefully help their numbers recover.
