Hedgehog Friendly Campus campaign is a national campaign that is accredited by the British Hedgehog Preservation Society. The University of Chester has been taking part in the campaign since April 2020 and recently received a bronze award for their work.

The University of Chester Hedgehog Friendly Campus campaign is formed of student and staff volunteers, who work with others across the university to promote hedgehog safety and adapt out campuses to allow hedgehogs to thrive. The team have an active presence on social media where they share their work, upcoming opportunities and hedgehog related information.

Over the past year, the team have organised many activities for students and staff to get involved with, this has included hedgehog house building at Exton Park and the University Allotment, a quiz night, hedgehog surveys and litter picks. Volunteers have also delivered presentations to students and staff during Go Green Festival and Digital Climate Cafes to update on their work.
