Hedgehog Friendly Campus

Cambridge Regional College pledge to go Hedgehog Friendly!

CRC has committed to taking part in Hedgehog Friendly Campus, a national accreditation programme funded by the British Hedgehog Preservation Society (BHPS).

Now on the Red List in Britain, wild hedgehogs have declined by as much as 75% since the year 2000. This is because of habitat loss, new development, roads and garden hazards. Universities, FE colleges and primary schools across the UK are now being urged to take part, and will be completing activities to help bring hedgehogs back from the brink.

Campuses can help by installing log piles and hedgehog houses, litter picking and taking part in campus hedgehog surveys. Would you like to get involved in Hedgehog Friendly Campus? Email for more information.

Students can claim a free starter pack. Just email .

What is a Hedgehog Friendly Campus?

The UK’s favourite spiny mammals are in trouble. Since the beginning of the 21st century, the number of hedgehogs in rural areas has plummeted by as much as 50% and in urban gardens by 30%. This means that hedgehogs are moving out of their rural homes and into built areas where they face a whole host of challenges, including road traffic, litter, poisoning and lack of access to food and water. As of 2020 there is an estimated number of just a million hedgehogs left, representing a 97% fall from the 30 million who once roamed the UK in the 1950s. As such it is clear they are in need of our help. If we don’t do something soon, this iconic mammal is likely to be a thing of the past in the UK.

The Hedgehog Friendly Campus scheme aims to raise awareness of the plight of hedgehog while taking practical steps to improve habitats and circumstances for hedgehogs across university campuses. Hedgehog Friendly Campus is a campaign that wants to arm a new generation of hedgehog champions with the skills and knowledge to give the dwindling hedgehog population a fighting chance. It will educate our staff, students and the surrounding community about hedgehog friendly behaviour, both on campus and at home.The Hedgehog Friendly Campus project is funded by the British Hedgehog Preservation Society and runs nationally.
