Research is being undertaken between the Gower Bird Hospital, Bristol University and the Swansea Ecology Research Team (SERTs) to look at parasites in hedgehogs, which are rapidly declining through England and Wales. This work uses molecular techniques to identify parasites in host species such as slugs and snails which are then eaten by hedgehogs.
