Nature and Biodiversity Community Hub

The Nature and Biodiversity Hub (Biohub) was the first of the three community hubs created, starting with a trial in 2017. The demise of local and global wildlife inspired the creation of the Biohub to bring together both keen undergraduate/postgraduate students and members of university staff and the public.

Together the goal has been to inspire a greater appreciation of nature and biodiversity in the public, especially young people and local community groups.

The Biohub is currently composed by 115 members and has connections with 5 local organisations. 

The hub engages with around 1000 (+/- 300) people every year. The Biohub's main attractions are the fun, yet educational, nature-themed games for all ages, with the BlockBuster game being the clear people's favourite. In addition, we have our postgraduate students presenting their own work through poster, games or other interesting activities.
