University Centre Hartpury animal lecturer, Lucy Bearman-Brown, spoke live on Radio 2 to Chris Evans about hedgehogs.
Lucy is currently studying for a PhD looking at the impact that humans and environmental change are having on the declining hedgehog population.
The Senior Lecturer in Animal Science, and Animal Behaviour and Welfare, spoke to the breakfast show host about her PhD and what factors are known to be causing the decline. She also gave some helpful tips on how the public can help to reverse it.
