Find 500 species in the University BioBlitz, 15/16 June
The University estate is host to a whole range of interesting bird, mammal and plant life so this is a great opportunity for nature lovers to get out and explore. The BioBlitz will be split between three locations: Central Campus, the Attenborough Arboretum on Carisbrooke Road and Blackthorn Manor on Southmeads Road in Oadby. A shuttle bus will run between main campus and Blackthorn Manor between 10.00am and 5.00pm on Saturday.
The event, organised by the Environment Team, will focus on identifying as many species as possible across the 305 acres of green space owned by the University. The records collected during the BioBlitz will form the foundation of a Biodiversity Action Plan to help manage wildlife and habitats at the University in the future.
Refreshments will be provided at all events and there will be plenty of activities to participate in.
