Warwick, Hugh

Hugh Warwick is an author and ecologist with a particular, and some consider peculiar, interest in hedgehogs. In his first book, A Prickly Affair, he argued that hedgehogs are the most important creature on the planet and in The Beauty in the Beast ended up getting his first and last tattoo (of a hedgehog, of course). But eccentricities aside, his background is in science and his critique of the attempts to kill all the hedgehogs on the Uists in the Outer Hebrides has been accepted as honest and reasonable, even by those he was rather vigorously attacking.
