Hundreds from the community survey biodiversity on campus

Published: 30 June 2014

On the 13th and 14th June, the first ever Southampton BioBlitz welcomed over 100 people onto the Highfield Campus to explore local biodiversity.

Local experts and university scientists helped nature lovers from around the city take part in the surveys and to understand local plant and wildlife. The event began with a bat walk on the Friday night, followed by a day of surveying and guided walks of birds, plants and insects at the University’s Highfield Campus and the adjacent common land. Over 227 different species were identified, including lime hawk-moths and damsel-flies, providing invaluable data for the university and City Council. It wasn’t all serious though; this was a family day out with stalls and face-painting to add to the fun.
