British hedgehogs have a new ambassador in famous intellectual CJ de Mooi from TV quiz show, the Eggheads. CJ has become a celebrity patron of the British Hedgehog Preservation Society (BHPS). He once ran his own hedgehog sanctuary in Germany and is keen to help the UK's hedgehogs too.
The charity's chief executive Fay Vass said BHPS is very grateful for CJ's support. "Hedgehog populations are plummeting in the UK; it's a shocking fact that their loss is comparable to that of the world's tiger population," she said.
