Our Biodiversity branch is responsible for ensuring that there is a wide range of flora and fauna on campus.

This branch aims to increase the overall biodiversity around campus by working closely with groups and societies such as the GU Beekeeping Society, the Biodiversity Working Group, and Hedgehog Friendly Campus. The biodiversity promoter supports these groups by helping to coordinate with the relevant university departments, secure funding, and facilitate training.

The branch also takes care of the Viewfield Lane gardens, Wildlife garden, and other wildlife sites on the Gilmorehill Campus. Apart from engaging with societies, the branch has also invited students from the local Hillhead Primary School for gardening and painting sessions in Viewfield Lane.

Overall, the Biodiversity branch aims to increase the public awareness of the need for increased biodiversity across campus.
