Sustainable UCL

Hedgehog Friendly Campus is a new project funded by the British Hedgehog Preservation Trust, in collaboration with SOS-UK. The project aims to turn university campuses into a place where hedgehogs can thrive. 

Why universities? 

Universities take up quite a bit of space and one of the biggest threats to hedgehogs is loss of habitat. Add to that threats from busy roads, litter and diminishing access to food and water.

Universities also have the greatest potential to tackle these issues. UCL has a community of 50,000 people whose combined efforts to survey hedgehog habitats, build hedgehog houses and most importantly, raise awareness about this critical biodiversity threat on our own doorsteps.

Helping hedgehogs in Bloomsbury isn't the only thing we can do right now though as we continue to work remotely. Jo Wilkinson from Hedgehog Friendly Campus will be sharing tips and tricks to encourage, protect and monitor hedgehogs at home!

Registration in advance is essential so register here. You will receive Zoom instructions closer to the event.

Please note, this webinar will be recorded for anyone to watch at a later date.
