Climate change affects temperature, which affects hibernation, albeit indirectly—wildlife hibernate because there is not enough food available to justify the energy expenditure of foraging. Changes in local weather patterns due to global climatic shifts can lead to decreased abundances of invertebrates on which hedgehogs depend for food. Without sufficient food, hedgehogs cannot build-up large enough fat stores to survive hibernation.
