Join the Big Hog Friendly Litter pick Challenge

September 19, 2023 @ 8:00 am - November 30, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

From 19th September to 30th November 2023, we are holding a national competition to find out which institution can collect the most litter from campus and in the community. There are 4 categories: University, College, Secondary, and Primary School and the winner of each category will receive a free Hedgehog House complete with a bag of hedgehog food. 
Thanks to the British Hedgehog Preservation Society for the generous prize donation. All participants (whether from the winning team or not) will receive a digital certificate from us.
By taking part in this challenge, you will be helping hedgehogs and other wildlife in your community from potentially becoming trapped and entangled in plastic packaging, which can lead to suffocation or severe injuries from sharp or tight objects.
Unfortunately, hedgehogs die every year because of this. Scroll down to see how you can get involved in our 2023 Big Hog Friendly Litter Pick Challenge.
Need an incentive?
It also helps Hedgehog Friendly Campus & Schools teams tick an action towards their award! 


We know hedgehogs are in trouble. We’ve lost a third of all our hedgehogs since the millennium.
Hedgehogs love gardens, and fortunately, there are around half a million hectares of gardens in the UK. We know what hedgehogs need to survive in gardens.
Hedgehogs need access to lots of gardens to survive, so we are encouraging everyone to cooperate.
