Ghosts in the Hedgerow: who or what is responsible for our favourite mammal’s decline



'A delight' Hugh Warwick, ecologist and author of A Prickly Affair

'A necessary nature book.' John Lewis-Stempel

'A triumph' Charles Foster, author of Cry of the Wild, Being a Human and A Little Brown Sea

Hedgehogs are disappearing. Their numbers are estimated to have halved in less than twenty years. Why? Who could possibly have it in for the hedgehog when in poll after poll they come out top as our favourite mammal. Is it the car driver, the badger, the farmer, or the gardener?

Magnifying glass in hand, Tom Moorhouse investigates the evidence. On a vital mission to bring those responsible to justice, prevent further murder and save a species, he uncovers a story full of twists, turns and uncomfortable truths about the trade-offs that exist between humans and wildlife.

And then thankfully he provides solutions. A final chapter equips the reader with the toolkit required to try and coax our beloved hedgehogs back.
