A home for hedgehogs
We’re making changes to our green spaces to encourage hedgehogs onto campus.
If you’ve seen a hedgehog on campus let us know by completing a short online survey. The information you share will help us understand where hedgehogs are on campus, and identify any potential barriers that might be stopping them from making our campus their home.
We're making our campuses more inviting for hedgehogs and other wildlife by:
- Allowing brambles to grow
- Placing out hedgehog houses and providing log piles for them to nest in.
- Leaving areas of long grass and hedgerows to allow wildlife to move around campus safely.
Are there hedgehogs on campus?
The team have placed tunnels around the University so they can identify if there are hedgehogs on campus and what adjustments can be made to help them thrive.
Our hedgehog campaign is in partnership with the charity Wildlife Aid.
