University of Essex is working towards the Silver award for a Hedgehog Friendly Campus accreditation.
Hedgehog numbers in the UK have declined by up to half since the year 2000. It is now estimated that there are fewer than 1 million left. Becoming a Hedgehog Friendly Campus means that the University of Essex will become a safe space for hedgehogs to thrive.
We are running a survey training event for you to learn how to get involved with surveying Hedgehogs on our Colchester campus. Following this online training session, on the Friday we will be putting out the tunnels on our Colchester campus.
You need to be free on Friday 2 October between 10.30am-12.30pm to put out the tunnels.
