Hugh Warwick is an ecologist and writer with a particular fondness for hedgehogs. His first book, A Prickly Affair, was endorsed by Jeanette Winterson. In April 2014 Reaktion Books published his illustrated monograph on the iconography of the hedgehog and his later book Linescapes (2017) investigates the impact that the lines we make have on the capacity of wildlife to thrive. Hugh’s latest book is The Hedgehog Book published by Graffeg in 2020. In addition to writing, Hugh isa spokesperson for the British Hedgehog Preservation Society, a Visiting Fellow at Oxford Brookes University, and regularly engages in public speaking, from primary schools to postgraduate research groups, via the WI and Wildlife Trusts.
