The Royal Parks hosts European Hedgehog Workshop
Following five years of intensive hedgehog research in London’s Regent’s Park, The Royal Parks were delighted to host the 8th workshop of the European Hedgehog Research Group in London’s Hyde Park on 22 & 23 February 2019.
The aim of this meeting was to bring together hedgehog researchers from around Europe to share the latest findings and advancements in hedgehog conversation and bring people together to discuss the conservation of this vulnerable species.
Attendees were treated to a variety of excellent presentations, with topics ranging from survey methodology and hedgehog disease, to how citizen scientists can play a role in protecting this iconic mammal. Experts joined us from across the UK and as far as Germany, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Denmark and The Netherlands.
We were honoured that Pat Morris MBE and Terri Amory could join us as key note speakers.
A huge thank you to everyone who attended and all the speakers. It was a fascinating two days and a chance to reflect on all the hard work taking place to conserve this well-loved animal. Feedback from the workshop has been brilliant and we look forward to being involved in the next one.
