West Midlands Hedgehog Rescue is run by experienced hedgehog carer Joan Lockley. Over the past 15 years she has saved thousands of hedgehogs.


Her aim is to always act in the best interests of sick, injured and distressed wild native hedgehogs. She'll never refuse a call for help, and will either look after the hedgehog in our purpose-built West Midlands Hosprickal, or  help you find another carer in your area if you're not in her region.


Joan is always on a mission to educate people as to how they can help hedgehogs and about the worrying decline of the species. She holds regular educational talks and recently featured in Episode 1 of Nature Nuts with Julian Clary on ITV1. In October 2015 Joan won an IFAW Animal Action Award for her work with hedgehogs.
