Hugh Warwick, on a close encounter with a hedgehog
in The Ecologist

“…something changed in me with that one encounter, and I believe it can change in anyone who has an opportunity to get really close to something genuinely wild. And the reason the hedgehog is so important is that it is wild, it is as wild as a tiger, but it is there in our gardens, acting as a gate-keeper to this alternate view of the world. ”

“We have an innate need to be in touch with nature. We are happier and healthier if we have that connection.”

Hugh Warwick’s book, A Prickly Affair, emerges this month as a Penguin paperback. Not surprisingly Hedgehog Hugh tends an excellent hedgehog blog.
