Henry, the Great Big Dorset Hedgehog’s, epic coastal trip
Dorset Climate Action Network (Dorset CAN) is one of many groups working to make a difference for our children and grandchildren and anyone else lucky enough to live in the south west.
Where previous generations were concerned about preserving the countryside, we now face an explosion of problems – from sea level rise, massive losses of insects, amphibians and birds to plastic and microplastic pollution and devastating climate change.
But if these disasters are what inspire us to take action, we work with our dream of a:
This August (2022), Henry, Dorset CAN’s Great Big Dorset Hedgehog mascot will travel in relays through each of the 35 parishes that stretch the length of the Dorset coastline. Henry will be promoting positive ways to mitigate climate change and reverse biodiversity loss and signing up new members of Dorset CAN.
In particular he’ll be promoting our campaign to plant, extend and link up hedges across the county (the Great Big Dorset Hedge), and other initiatives to clean up Dorset’s rivers and coastline.
Numerous Dorset organisations will be joining us to carry Henry using carbon minimal transport bus and train, paddle board, rowing gig, walking, cycling, electric scooters and more.
Do join us in August and sign up for updates on Henry’s travel plans
