Who we are

We are a group of teachers, ecologists and technologists who are part of the educational charity makingpi.com (charity number 1158556).  We have come together to use our skills to help nature at this most critical of times.  The hedgehog republic has been jointly developed with our partners( especially Wild Hogs Hedgehog Rescue Centre). We are particularly grateful to our financial supporters

Over the last year the Republics have grown to include 3 sites based around primary schools. We are also rolling out conservation gaming to six other schools.
