Volunteer Hedgehog Survey 2021 - 22

Volunteers are invited to take part in a national hedgehog survey. This survey will be conducted from June to September 2021 and 2022.


Volunteers will select a 1km square area to survey. You will place 10 footprint tunnels within the area for 5 nights and check them each morning for signs of hedgehogs. Results will be submitted by email.

This survey would be suitable for interested individuals, local wildlife or conservation groups and community and youth groups. Participants are welcome from all over Ireland.



Workshops were delivered online in may and June for interested persons to learn more about the survey and to provide volunteers with instructions and equipment needed.

If you missed the workshops, you can watch a recorded workshop - please email elaine.oriordan@nuigalway.ie for a copy.
