The majority of universities in the world have vast campuses which absorb much space. This is an excellent opportunity to support biodiversity with a national indigenous wildflower planting policy. University Campuses could potentially be havens for declining / threatened species of precious insects like Bees, Butterflies, ladybirds etc. Each campus could become a local biodiversity hotspot.

Economics demands that many Universities operate a ‘soft landscaping’ practice where they use ever green plants that require little maintenance to keep costs down. Sadly this soft landscaping ethos on a national scale does not support biodiversity very well.

A pilot project has been ran since the late 2000’s where the Estates Division of Cardiff University very kindly agreed to allocate some green space at their engineering department for an indigenous wildflower planting initiative.

Over several years the site had the initial soil management, 50 wildflowers plantlets added which were then monitored over successive years. The plant monitoring for season growth, potential impacts, discussing the site with staff and students to gain feedback etc. will be part of a feasibility study being conducted to see of a national University campus wildflower planting policy can be founded.

In biodiversity terms; what can you do for your University campus?
