An ecologist and writer with a particular fondness for hedgehogs, Hugh Warwick's A Prickly Affair argues that hedgehogs are the most important creatures on the planet. A book about our relationship with the creatures as much as it is about hedgehogs themselves, it is a funny look at a critter we all think we know, managing to sneak in a whole array of facts amidst the anarchy of hedgehog hospitals and the International Hedgehog Olympic Games. 'Save the hedgehog and save the world...'
Hugh is the author of Linescapes, which investigates the impact that the lines we make have on the capacity of wildlife to thrive. He is spokesperson for the British Hedgehog Preservation Society.
