Helping Hedgehogs One Highway at a Time

Date Posted: 08th December 2020

Timloc Building Products has produced a hedgehog highway to help tackle the declining number of hedgehogs across the UK.

New planning laws require a 13cm hole to be put in the base of fences in all new housing developments, creating a highway for hedgehogs. Hedgehogs can travel up to 2 miles per night and modern housing developments greatly restrict the freedom that hedgehogs need to thrive.

The Hedgehog Highway by Timloc has been designed to connect gardens, enabling hedgehogs to roam freely and forage for food and shelter without restriction.

As a manufacturing company, we take our responsibility for the environment seriously and the conservation of hedgehogs is a matter close to our hearts. The Hedgehog Highway by Timloc is produced from 100% recycled plastic – as are many products in the Timloc range – and the packaging is 100% recyclable too.

Timloc Building Products has partnered with Market Weighton Hedgehog Group, a non-profit organisation set up to help conserve declining hedgehog numbers by providing shelter and food for injured hedgehogs and educating the public on hedgehog conservation. All proceeds from the sale of hedgehog highways will be donated to Market Weighton Hedgehog Group.

Timloc is manufacturing the Hedgehog Highways on a not-for-profit basis. The highways can be purchased from Market Weighton Hedgehog Group via the following links:
