The total hedgehog population is estimated to have halved in less than twenty years and now less than one million animals remain. In an attempt to find out who – or what – is responsible for the steep decline, conservationist Tom Moorhouse has examined the evidence closely and uncovered a story full of twists, turns and uncomfortable truths about the trade-offs that exist between humans and wildlife. But he can also see a solution, a way for all of us to help save the hedgehog.
