Hedgehogs are in trouble – research by People’s Trust for Endangered Species shows that hedgehogs have declined by 30% in the last 10 years alone and there are now thought to be fewer than one million left in the UK.

If you've seen a hedgehog in Cumbria please report your hedgehog sighting

Cumbria Wildlife Trust is concerned about the decline of hedgehogs and would like to know if you have seen a hedgehog in Cumbria.
