Wildlife trusts in the region are warning that hedgehogs are suffering during the current hot weather.
Harder soil and the lack of water has meant Hedgehogs are having to travel further and further to find vital food and water.
Essex Wildlife Trust says with impenetrable garden fences, Hedgehogs are putting themselves at risk and crossing main roads in their search.
Hedgehogs have already faced massive declines over the last 50 years due to agricultural intensification, habitat fragmentation and an increase in roads.
Essex Wildlife Trust are asking you to do two simple things to give Hedgehogs the best chance of surviving the summer.
- Firstly, leaving out a shallow dish of water provides a much-needed source of hydration (but not milk).
- Secondly, cutting a small hole around 13cm by 13cm wide - roughly the size of a CD - in the bottom of your hedge or fence allows Hedgehogs to move from garden to garden and avoid having to cross dangerous roads.
