Purpose and background

With this conference we wish to bridge the gap between hedgehog researchers and hedgehog carers internationally. We hope to establish a strong and respectful collaboration between the scientists and the care practitioners with the purpose of improving hedgehog conservation. It is essential that we work together and strengthen our teamwork to help save the declining hedgehog population.

The conference furthermore serves to present the most recent hedgehog research and hedgehog conservation initiatives from all over Europe to inspire and inform all participants at the conference.

We have decided to make the conference participation and accommodation from 19th of September to 20th of September free of charge for all hedgehog rehabilitators, hopefully allowing as many participants as possible to join us.
