What’s Happening to our Hedgehogs?


Wednesday 2 March 2016


There has been a serious decline in hedgehog numbers. What’s the evidence, what’s the cause and what can we do to help? Dr Pat Morris MBE FLS was Senior Lecturer in Zoology at Royal Holloway, University of London, and is well known for his studies on mammal ecology, especially hedgehogs, dormice, water voles and red squirrels. He has played significant roles in many NGOs and societies, including the Mammal Society, the National Trust, the London Wildlife Trust and zoos, as well as advising Government, publishers and broadcasters. He is a prolific author. He has also pursued a longstanding interest in the history of taxidermy, serving as one of the Government’s taxidermy inspectors for assessing age and authenticity of antique taxidermy in connection with CITES controls.

This meeting is free and open to all; registration is not necessary. Tea and coffee will be served in the Library following the event. Image © Pat Morris.
