Sept 26th (Wed) 7.30pm Uplyme Village Hall Talk 'How hedgehogs can save the world (and help in the garden as well)' by Hugh Warwick
Author and leading hedgehog expert Hugh Warwick will coming to Uplyme Village Hall to give an illustrated talk about his passion for these prickly beasts. He has studied them, on and off, for over 25 years, has written about them, rescued them, radio tracked them and talked, incessantly, about them. He will be sharing his insights into the madness of the extreme end of the hedgehog lovers world while arguing that a little bit of hedgehog love in all our lives could be the key to the salvation of humanity Well known for being a great help in the garden, thanks to their diet rich in slugs and snails, hedgehogs also have an important role to play in our relationship with the natural world, Hugh will argue. In fact he has gone so far as to have a hedgehog permanently tattooed upon his person (he will reveal where, as long as he thinks the audience is up to it). The tattoo came as part of an art project, called ExtInked (and was his first and last tattoo). We might think of the hedgehog as common, but Hugh will be asking his audience to consider whether they have been seeing fewer hedgehogs of late. Because the latest report he was involved with concluded that, conservatively, there has been a 25% decline in their number in the last ten years, and the reality is probably far worse.His hedgehog book, A Prickly Affair, was widely praised and remains possibly the only book to be published featuring commendations from both jeanette Winterson and Ann Widdecombe on the cover. Like his talk, it is full of fun and laughter while at the same time carrying with it a serious ecological message about the way we impact hedgehogs and the planet. So come and join the fun at 7.30pm on Wednesday 26th September and find out where the tattoo is! For more information about Hugh and his work, visit www.urchin.info
