Trinity College Dublin completes pilot biodiversity audit

A biodiversity audit was recently completed to document biodiversity across Trinity’s 47-acre green campus in the city of Dublin. This was a collaboration between staff and students, Estates and Facilities teams, interns and volunteers. The study highlighted that in addition to iconic species such as foxes, trees and swifts, there is a wealth of hidden biodiversity in the form of plants, insects, fungi and other creatures.

This was one of the first tasks of the newly appointed Vice President for Biodiversity and Climate Action and will feed into the Biodiversity Strategy which is being developed to encompass all of Trinity’s operations.
