Manchurian Hedgehog

Erinaceus amurensis

The Manchurian Hedgehog, Erinaceus amurensis, is listed as Least Concern on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™. This small mammal is found in China, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, the Republic of Korea and the Russian Federation.

As a relatively common species with a stable population, the Manchurian Hedgehog is not currently believed to be facing any threats. It can live in a wide variety of habitats, from natural highlands and marshes to intensively cultivated agricultural areas, therefore habitat modifications are not thought to affect this adaptable species.

There are not currently known to be any species-specific conservation measures in place for the Manchurian Hedgehog, although parts of its range are known to fall within legally protected areas.
