SEGA, The British Hedgehog Preservation Society and Ben Fogle are holding a fun family education day to raise awareness of hedgehog welfare on Bonfire Night.
You are invited to the free event that will take place at Camley Street Natural Park in London on Thursday 27th October 2022. It will be an opportunity for all of the family to learn about how to safeguard this much-loved creature. The event will include meet and greets with Sonic The Hedgehog, and information from renowned hedgehog expert and author Hugh Warwick about hedgehog welfare and advocacy.
Award-winning broadcaster and adventurer, Ben Fogle, will also be discussing his love of nature, and in particular hedgehogs!
There will also be LOADS of Sonic The Hedgehog-themed activities, including a Sonic treasure hunt, drawing competition, clay hedgehog modelling, pond dipping and an exclusive chance to play the new Sonic Frontiers video game before it even hits the shelves on 8th November 2022.
Bonfires and hedgehogs
The event is taking place to coincide with the launch of Sonic Frontiers but to also raise awareness of how each year hedgehogs are at risk of being injured, hurt and even killed as we celebrate bonfire night.
Log piles used for bonfires provide the perfect shelter for hedgehogs as they begin to look for places to hibernate and stay warm and dry. But, unintentionally, this puts them in danger as pre-prepared bonfires are set alight. Charities, such as the British Hedgehog Preservation Society, raise awareness of how to make sure hedgehogs are kept safe each bonfire night.
What is Sonic Frontiers?
Sonic Frontiers is an upcoming platform game developed by Sonic Team and published by SEGA.
Worlds are colliding in Sonic the Hedgehog’s newest high-speed adventure. In search of the missing Chaos Emeralds, Sonic becomes stranded on an ancient island teeming with unusual creatures. Players will battle hordes of powerful enemies and titanic threats as they explore a breath-taking world of action, adventure and mystery. With nothing but a handful of questions, mysterious strangers and an unknown voice to guide him, Sonic accelerates to new heights in this free-roaming, open-zone, action-packed adventure.
To join SEGA, The British Hedgehog Preservation Society and Ben Fogle at Camley Street Natural Park on 27th October 2022, please visit the venue from 10am – 4pm.
