Students built hedgehog houses.
Germering – Perfectly maintained gardens, robotic lawn mowers and fewer and fewer insects make hedgehogs sick.
These are just a few of the reasons why the situation is becoming increasingly difficult for the hedgehog at home.
In Bavaria, the small wild animals are already on the early warning list of the "Red List" of endangered animals.
The Hedgehog Aid in Fürstenfeldbruck and the surrounding area has set itself the task of helping you.
They received active support from the Eugen-Papst-School.
The 6th graders built four hedgehog houses as part of a project.
For this they had to grind, drill and screw.
That wasn't always easy and some holes were probably drilled too much.
The specialist teacher and initiator of the project, Barbara Hagmann, sees the project not only strengthening the technical skills of the young people, but also sharpening their awareness of their environment.
The highlight of the project was certainly the visit to Ms. Beckinger from the Igelhilfe in Germering.
When the self-built hedgehog houses were handed over, the young helpers were even allowed to stroke a hedgehog.
The Hedgehog Aid in Fürstenfeldbruck and the surrounding area was delighted with the new hedgehog houses.
How can you help the hedgehogs yourself?
The Hedgehog Aid recommends a water and feeding station all year round, as there are fewer and fewer insects, which are the hedgehog's main source of nutrition.
Hedgehogs like to eat cat food, but without grain and without sugar.
The hedgehogs are also happy about softly fried scrambled eggs without spices or mealworms.
Please do not give milk!
Please do not use robotic lawn mowers.
Even if the manufacturers claim that animals are not harmed, the association has had other experiences.
Caution is also required with lawn trimmers.
Before use, please make sure that there isn't a hedgehog nearby.
Donations to the animal protection association FFB Igelstation are welcome.
