Rescue, Care and Rehabilitation of Hedgehogs

October 29, 2023 @ 10:00 am 2:00 pm

Hedgehog Title Slide

This species-specific course focusing on Hedgehogs is aimed at those who have already completed our Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release Courses and/or have some good foundation knowledge of the rehabilitation of hedgehogs. The course will include discussion of:

  • The ecology and biology of Hedgehogs relevant to their assessment and triage for treatment, rehabilitation and release
  • The care of Hedgehogs whilst in captivity
  • Some of the common reasons for admissions of Hedgehogs to vets and wildlife centres
  • The care of neonatal and juvenile Hedgehogs

The course will be led by Dan Bryant (SWWR Wildlife Care Supervisor) and Dr Liz Mullineaux MRCVS (SWWR Scientific Advisor), both of whom have many years of experience in dealing with Hedgehogs. The courses will be run virtually (online using Zoom) as a half day (4hr) event. It is possible to attend the courses online on the day or as a recorded presentation, sent to registered delegates and accessible for a limited time after the course. Those attending will receive an electronic certificate, as well as a selection of relevant open access scientific papers and other supporting electronic information.
