How to Help a Hedgehog and Protect a Polar Bear


It seems that each one of us can make a difference to the future and health of our planet through thoughtful actions. Thereafter, Dr Jess French and Angela Keoghan explain and show How to Help a Hedgehog and Protect a Polar Bear.

We might help a hedgehog by having gaps in our garden fences that enable this creature to travel. Then we can avoid putting down slug pellets which kill hedgehogs,  garden birds and other species. Then again, should we investigate hedgerows, we might see a rich variety of species. We might even take part in ‘the People’s Trust for Endangered Species’ Great Stag Hunt‘!

Meanwhile, reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates, mammals and birds might all be found in wetlands. We might take part in surveys in these areas, alongside getting to know the rich range of creatures that live here. In fact wetlands are just one of the twelve habitats to which we are introduced, alongside a section about animal migration.

Bookwagon loves the inclusivity of the information alongside the encouragement that inspires readers to realise their connection to the world about us. We recommend How to Help a Hedgehog and Protect a Polar Bear highly for reading and learning from at home, and school.

How to Help a Hedgehog and Protect a Polar Bear

70 everyday ways to save our planet

Dr Jess French and Angela Keoghan

It seems every one of us can make a difference to the health of our planet. In fact  ‘even on a small scale, there are many things [we] can do to help save the world’s most endangered animals and their habitats‘. Thereafter, Dr Jess French investigates a variety of habitats and offers us tips for possible actions.
For example, within our own gardens, we might create an opening for small animals like hedgehogs to pass through our fences. Then again, we might ‘plant native flowers with lots of nectar for bees and butterflies to visit’. However, in the heathlands we should ‘keep dogs on a lead‘ and ‘pack a no-rubbish lunch‘ when we visit. After all heathlands ‘support many rare species‘ from ‘the Dartford warbler, the nightjar, the woodlark and the ladybird spider’. 
What’s more, even in more remote areas, like oceans, we can make a difference to our planet’s health. For example, we can ‘buy responsibly and sustainably sourced fish’ and then again, avoid ‘single- use plastics‘ and flushing ‘wet wipes down- toilets‘. After all, litter and then the ‘bycatch’, when bigger ocean animals are caught in fishing nets, are huge problems here.
Alongside Dr Jess French’s pitch perfect, riveting information, we admire Angela Keoghan’s pictures. She draws us into each habitat, illustrating thewonder and diversity. Like I Ate Sunshine for Breakfast, it seems  How to Help a Hedgehog and Protect a Polar Bear is a relevant, dynamic title that we recommend to all readers. Not only is the information fresh and real, but a compulsion is offered that makes us want to step up and help make a difference.
