Animal Care learners at Derby College’s Broomfield Hall have successfully released two hedgehogs back into the wild having spent the winter looking after them.

The hedgehogs, which learners named Apollo and Barry, were all found locally last Autumn and were too small and under-nourished to hibernate. They were taken in by the Animal Care department and learners have kept them at a constant indoor temperature to keep them awake and ensured they have been well fed over the winter months.
