Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP) of the University of Brighton, written in 2009, was reviewed, leading to the development or concrete time-bound actions and the launch of a programme of participatory events set to improve biodiversity across campuses. Action began in March with 54 enthusiastic university staff and student volunteers, who braved the unsettled weather to plant three hundred shrubs and trees at Falmer.
The BAP aims to develop a more abundant, connected and resilient landscape, inviting wildlife into the heart of the two pilot sites at Moulsecoomb and Falmer, and a variety of management practices will be implemented, creating new habitats for fauna and flora.
