‘Saving Harry’ by Kris Hofmann

savingharry

Magical paw prints guide Harry the hedgehog out of suburbia and back into the wild. Since the 1950s the number of hedgehogs in Britain has fallen from 30 million to 1 million. We could be faced with possible urban extinction of the much cherished little animal by 2025. Created for Wildlife Aid.

    It’s nice to know that even in a geographically tiny and highly developed country like Brittain they’re starting to push for improved conservation. Lets hope it’s the start of bigger steps in the right direction.
