Protecting Our Spiky Friends: Glendale’s Commitment to Hedgehogs

4 weeks ago

Have you ever noticed the bright yellow stickers on some of our team members’ machinery? These aren’t just decorative. They serve as a crucial reminder for our teams to check the area for hedgehogs or small animals before they start their work. At Glendale, safeguarding our wildlife is a priority deeply ingrained in our operations. As longstanding members of the Hedgehog Heroes Roll of Honour, we ensure that our staff are thoroughly trained to look out for hedgehogs and other wildlife before carrying out any horticultural activities.

The Importance of Hedgehogs in Our Environment

Hedgehogs are more than just cute faces in our green spaces; they play a vital role in the health of our environment. Acting as natural pest controllers, they help maintain the balance by consuming insects that can damage plant life. Their presence is a sign of a healthy ecosystem. However, their numbers have been declining, making it all the more important to protect them and their habitats.

Raising Awareness for Hedgehog Safety

Awareness is the first step towards change. By highlighting the need to protect hedgehogs, we aim to encourage not only our team but also other companies and individuals who use machinery like mowers and strimmers to consider the safety of these small creatures. Checking areas for hedgehogs before beginning work can save lives and contribute to the conservation of these essential animals.

Glendale’s Focus on Wildlife Preservation

At Glendale, we believe in doing more than just maintaining green spaces; we aim to enhance them. This means working in a way that not only avoids impacting wildlife habitats but actively improves them. Our approach includes creating environments that are welcoming for hedgehogs and other wildlife, ensuring that our operations promote a thriving ecosystem.

We are committed to practices that protect and preserve the natural habitats within our care, reinforcing the belief that a successful grounds maintenance company can operate effectively while being mindful of its environmental responsibilities. Our teams are trained to carry out their tasks with the utmost consideration for the surrounding wildlife, ensuring that our activities contribute positively to the local ecosystem.
