The Royal Parks

In this episode, Bryony Cross, Volunteering and Programmes Manager for The Royal Parks takes us on a long journey through the night to learn about the urban hedgehog. One of many weird and wonderful mammals in the Royal Parks, we are home to the only breeding population found in central London.

We learn about their history in the Royal Parks, talk about uncovering little hoglets, and uncover the role we can play in ensuring their survival for generations to come. Join us as we learn more about this prickly business.
