Brighton Hedgehog Friendly Campus

Bronze award

Hedgehog Friendly Campus: Bronze Award 2020/21

We are excited to announce that the University of Brighton is now a Bronze level Hedgehog Friendly Campus!  We have spent the last year campaigning to increase awareness around the threats that hedgehogs face and liaising with our grounds teams to instigate more hedgehog-friendly management practices across our campuses.

To achieve Silver Accreditation we hope to:

  • Complete hedgehog surveys on campus
  • Create wild corners with hedgehog houses, hedgehog highways and appropriate plant species
  • Continue to increase awareness of the issues hedgehogs face among both our student and local community

Why this is important

Hedgehogs have declined by up to 50% in the UK since just the year 2000. They are now vulnerable to extinction in Britain.

How you can help

Follow our social media channels for updates and upcoming opportunities on how to get involved! We can do big things across our campuses to help protect and encourage hedgehogs!
