Designed to support the teaching of minibeasts on the primary school curriculum, this impressive habitat provides a home for pollinators, beneficial insects, mini mammals and hedgehogs. A stunning addition to any school wildlife garden.
This giant educational triangular habitat stands a metre tall. It is constructed from FSC timber with lots of varied habitats within the structure. Starting at the base we have a Hogitat or hedgehog shelter which provide hedgehogs with protection from predators and garden tools such as strimmers, mowers and forks. The three different types of log habitats are good for beneficial insects such as ladybirds and lacewings and also pollinators such as solitary bees.
- The small specially designed holes are ideal for solitary bee occupation
- The larger holes will provide homes for additional beneficial insects
- The slot logs are good for lacewings and provide crevices for over wintering insects
The crittacabin is finished with the addition of natural pine cones and re-cycled plastic fixing points on the reverse to allow the habitat to be secured in place for child safety and school security.

Buglife is the only organisation in Europe devoted to the conservation of all invertebrates. We’re actively working to save Britain’s rarest little animals, everything from bees to beetles, worms to woodlice and jumping spiders to jellyfish.
There are more than 40,000 invertebrate species in the UK, and many of these are under threat as never before.
Invertebrates are vitally important to a healthy planet – humans and other life forms could not survive without them. The food we eat, the fish we catch, the birds we see, the flowers we smell and the hum of life we hear, simply would not exist without bugs. Invertebrates underpin life on earth and without them the world’s ecosystems would collapse.
Invertebrates are facing an extinction crisis
Today, thousands of invertebrate species are declining and many are heading towards extinction. Worldwide 150,000 species could be gone by 2050 if we do nothing.
Each invertebrate species plays a unique and important role in the web of life, but once lost, they cannot be replaced. Many invertebrates have incredible life stories yet to be told, and we literally don’t know what we are on the brink of losing.
Buglife’s aim is to halt the extinction of invertebrate species and to achieve sustainable populations of invertebrates.
We are working hard to achieve this through:
- Promoting the environmental importance of invertebrates and raising awareness about the challenges to their survival.
- Assisting in the development of legislation and policy that will ensure the conservation of invertebrates.
- Developing and disseminating knowledge about how to conserve invertebrates.
- Encouraging and supporting invertebrate conservation initiatives by other organisations in the UK, Europe and worldwide.
- Undertaking practical conservation projects that will contribute to achieving our aim.
