Service Description

IMPORTANT! We do not accept birthday parties. This is an educational visit. The educational & awareness visit includes: - A brief talk about the sanctuary and what we do to help the hedgehogs. We will talk about Hornbeam Wood Hedgehog Sanctuary and how we help the hedgehogs. We will talk about how we receive hedgehogs that need help right up to the point when we release the hedgehogs back in to the wild. - An educational talk about hedgehogs, nature, and wildlife in general. We will talk about why hedgehogs need everyone's help as they are an endangered species. We will discuss what foods they eat and what they do during the day and night. The talk will also include specifics about how hedgehogs are special and what they do in their day to day life. The children will also learn about how they can help the hedgehogs and what they can actively do that might bring a hedgehog in to their garden. - A small task revolving around the theme of hedgehogs. The talk will involve some hands on activities that the children will undertake. These activities will hopefully get them thinking about hedgehogs and an understanding of how precious they are to everyone in the country.
