The college was contacted by Capricorn Animal Rescue to look after the hedgehogs as the weather conditions are too extreme  for them to survive on their own throughout the winter. Level 3 Animal Care students and their tutor Helen Thewsey carried out extensive research into how looking after hedgehogs and preparing them for release which led to them creating a special enclosure  for their stayat the Northop site. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Sheila Stewart from Capricorn Animal Rescue said: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“We were more than happy to provide Coleg Cambria with the five hoglets.  They will provide students with a new experience as not many people get the chance to work with and care for hedgehogs. We know they will get the best of care at Coleg Cambria.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
