The British Hedgehog Preservation Society (BHPS) has launched a three-step plan in addition to recommendation on how one can spot and save hedgehogs hibernating in bonfires.

Fay Vass, chief govt of BHPS, mentioned: “A bonfire pile appears to be like like a 5* lodge to a hedgehog searching for a secure and cosy winter dwelling to hibernate in.

“They aren’t to know we plan to set gentle to it.”

BHPS mentioned there are three steps an individual ought to take earlier than lighting the match:

1. Transfer supplies to clear floor on the day they’re to be lit.

2. Examine the pile fastidiously.

3. Supply an escape route by solely lighting from one aspect.

Hedgehogs will usually cover within the centre, on the backside two toes of a bonfire pile, and it’s suggested supplies are moved with a pole or broom – not a fork or spade, which may trigger additional accidents to the animal.
