Pro Igel, the Association for Integrated Nature Conservation in Germany is a nationwide association active throughout Germany which advocates conservation of the native hedgehog (Erinaceus europaeus) by public relations and numerous publications. Our association provides guidance to skilful help for needy hedgehogs, gives advice to hedgehog finders, collects and promotes scientific works about the hedgehog. We are a union of specialists, no association with members taking membership fees, we work non-profit and finance ourselves entirely by donations.
