ACO Wildlife Refuges provide shelter for small animals against the elements and various types of predator.

There are five types of shelter, which have been designed for various types of small animal. These feature different openings and sizes, which prevent predators from gaining access while allowing smaller animals to move to safety.

  • Type 1:  fully open 160mm x 100mm (nominal) entrance for many types of small animal including hedgehogs
  • Types 2 and 3: slotted entrances suited to newts, lizards, and invertebrates
  • Type 4: for insects
  • Type 5: for snakes, lizards, mice, voles, and shrews

ACO Wildlife Refuges have a completely open base, ensuring that natural ground humidity is retained wherever they are installed.

No metal reinforcement is used in manufacture, so animals are not disoriented by distortion of magnetic fields.

The low thermal conductivity of polymer concrete means that the internal temperature of ACO Wildlife Refuges will remain lower in hot conditions.
