SOCIAL DISTANCING

Amazing Grace, the hedgehog preservation campaign, is urging Britain’s gardeners to ‘socially distance’ from wildlife in their gardens, following a spate of wild animals being ‘rescued’ from their natural habitat. 

Lockdown has tempted Britons out into their gardens and into their sheds where they’ve been surprised to find they share their space with hundreds of wild animals, most of which are certainly NOT in need of rescue.

Anne Brummer, founder and CEO of Harper Asprey Animal Rescue said: “We’ve had someone scooping up ducklings into a cardboard box to ‘keep them safe’ when the mother duck had only wandered into the next door garden.

“We’ve also seen a Mother hedgehog and her babies ‘rescued’ from a box in a garage they were nesting happily  in and fawns with full tummies brought into the rescue just because they were sitting still.

“People generally have good intentions, and concern for our feathered, furry and prickly neighbours, but these wild animals are often going about their business quite normally and DON’T need to be rescued.

“Wildlife Social Distancing is keeping to the distance from which you can watch without affecting their behaviour.”
