The delicately balanced ecosystem that we all depend on is under threat. Alarmingly, in the UK, almost two-thirds of species have declined in the last 50 years. Globally, around a quarter of mammals face extinction in the next three decades.

Together we can stop this loss of wildlife. That’s why People’s Trust for Endangered Species exists. For over 35 years we have improved the outlook of endangered species in Britain and throughout the world.

Passion drives our work but it’s grounded in science. Our approach is to invest in research and test the best ways to protect endangered species in their natural habitats. Then we put what works into action, creating vibrant wildlife havens.

The People’s Trust for Endangered Species are running a National Hedgehog Survey across England and Wales. All information is on their website which you can find at,
