About this event

Cork Nature Network are delighted to hold a talk on hedgehogs and how to get involved in the Irish Hedgehog Survey.

The free event will take place on Zoom, on 19th August at 7:00 pm. The talk will give a general introduction to hedgehogs – where they live, what they eat and some weird and wonderful hedgehog facts.

The Irish Hedgehog Volunteer Survey is currently underway and there is a great opportunity to be involved in a valuable and enjoyable activity. There will also be some helpful hints for what you can do to make your local area a better place for hedgehogs.

The hedgehog survey is supported by National Parks and Wildlife Service, the Ulster Wildlife Trust and the Heritage and Biodiversity Offices of Galway, Mayo, Roscommon, Kilkenny and Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Councils and Dublin City Council.
