There is a lot that we can do to help our wildlife on an individual basis, so I thought that this might be a good topic for us all to share issues that are either new, or of concern.
Thought I'd kick this off after seeing the terrible things that discarded elastic bands can do. The effect on Hedgehogs is extremely distressing. Please DO NOT open this link if you think you will be upset
by the photo of a Hedgehog who has been snagged by an elastic band. If you do open the link, there is a petition that will go to Royal Mail regarding the continual dropping of elastic bands by their delivery teams.http://thehedgehog.co.uk/how-to-help-he ... tic-bands/
For our part, we can be proactive in picking up elastic bands when we see them (I already do this for any that I see in my path, but having read the shocking news, I will now pick up all that I see).
