Islanders in the Outer Hebrides are to be offered £20 for every hedgehog they hand over to rescuers.
Locals will receive £20 in return for a hedgehog
Last year people on Uist were offered £5 per animal and the take-up was low.
Animal welfare groups are preparing a fresh attempt to stop hedgehogs being culled by Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH).
The agency is continuing with its project because hedgehogs eat the eggs of important local ground-nesting birds.
Uist Hedgehog Rescue (UHR) plans to resist any future cull and hopes to persuade celebrities such as Sting and Joanna Lumley to go to North Uist to help the campaign.
Last December, SNH agreed to spend £186,475 per year to help rid Uist of hedgehogs, with the cull set to be extended to the adjoining island of Benbecula during the latest drive.
Some 5,000 hedgehogs are thought to be at risk.
Protesters, such as UHR, claim the cull policy is "inhumane" and a waste of taxpayers' money.
Last year UHR, a consortium of animal protection, rehabilitation and rescue organisations, handed out £5 to islanders for each rescued hedgehog.
They saved and relocated 156 hedgehogs during their summer-long campaign.
Celebrities including Sting, Sir Paul McCartney, Twiggy, Joanna Lumley, Sir Tim Rice and Watership Down author Richard Adams all offered the animals homes over the summer and UHR is hoping they will do the same this year.
Earlier this month, the People's Trust for Endangered Species (PTES), shelved plans to move hedgehogs from the Western Isles to the mainland as an alternative to a cull.
