***POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE***
Welcome to the International Conference for Hedgehog Rehabilitators.
This conference is a collaboration between “The International Scientific Conference for Rehabilitators of European Hedgehogs” and “Hedgehog rehabilitation: Sharing best practice”.
A conference with the purpose of inspiring and strengthening the collaboration between hedgehog researchers and hedgehog carers to serve the common, important goal of preserving the European hedgehog in the wild.
*** Update on the 5th of January 2022: We are terribly sorry to announce that the International Conference for Hedgehog Rehabilitators at Hartpury University will have to be postponed until further notice due to the present COVID-19 situation. Participants who have already signed up will be contacted directly and will get the tickets refunded. We will keep you updated when we decide on a new date, but it will not be until the Autumn of 2022 or perhaps even later, depending on the development of the pandemic.***
***Update 20th of September 2020: Thank you all for participating in the conference, physically or virtually! We believe the conference was a great success and an important first step for establishing a respectful knowledge sharing network between hedgehog carers, hedgehog veterinarians and hedgehog researchers! We hope to see you all again at the next conference***
Please join our Facebook group if you are a hedgehog carer and want to watch online streaming of some of the presentations at the conference, or wish to take part in the knowledge sharing we hope this group will generate.
The next conference will take place from Saturday the 19th of February to Sunday the 20th of February 2022.
We encourage all European hedgehog rehabilitators and other professionals working with hedgehog rehabilitation to sign up for participation as we would like to see representatives from as many countries as possible.
The conference will be hosted by Hartpury University and Wildlife Conservation Research Unit (WildCRU), University of Oxford.
