Hedgehog Friendly Campus

What is Hedgehog Friendly Campus?

It has been a bit of a slow start for us with the pandemic, but we are making good progress towards achieving our bronze Hedgehog Friendly Campus accreditation at the RVC! 

The Hedgehog Friendly Campus initiative is a national campaign launched jointly by the British Hedgehog Preservation Society and the NUS with three levels of accreditation - bronze, silver and gold. From fundraising to blog writing, hedgehog surveys to wildflower planting, there's loads students can get involved in!

Current Events

We are currently taking part in the national "Big Hog-Friendly Litter Pick"! Anyone is welcome to participate (staff and students!) from anywhere in the world. Email any photos of you out collecting litter and with your bags of rubbish to suenvironment@rvc.ac.uk. The university that collects the most bags of trash between the 20th September and 29th November wins a hedgehog house and bag of hedgehog food for campus!

Upcoming events:

  • Online quiz!
  • Hedgehog house building

Bonfire Night 

It’s almost Bonfire Night, with November 5th just around the corner! We all love a good bonfire, but so do the hedgehogs (and other wildlife!). They are naturally drawn to areas of bush and debris that are commonly used for garden bonfires. Help protect the British Hedgehog this Bonfire Night by following these three easy steps before you light up the night:

  • MOVE the plant/burnable materials to a place of clear ground on the day they are to be lit
  • CHECK the pile again carefully just before lighting
  • OFFER an escape route for wildlife by only lighting from one side If a hedgehog is found, please refer to this link for tips on what to do.
