Coventry university praised for commitment to wildlife protection

Coventry Editorial 27th May, 2023   0

A NEW study has revealed Coventry University to be among the UK institutions doing the most to protect wildlife.

The university met 100 per cent of the ranking factors, making the ‘platinum tier’, with wildlife protection policies, partnerships or funding for local wildlife causes, biodiversity or wildlife activities on offer and regular wildlife surveys.

The study, led by Ark Wildlife, surveyed every university in Britain on their wildlife support on and off campus.

The study showed the university has partnerships across the region, including the Warwickshire Wildlife Trust, to work with local beekeepers to assess the impact of particulate pollution on honey bees.

Ark Wildlife director Sean McMenemy said: “It’s clear that some universities are taking wildlife conservation extremely seriously, and it’s great to see.

“They’re really in tune with the local environment, providing invaluable habitats to animals in the area.

“Importantly, the most wildlife-friendly universities are actively encouraging students to become involved.

“This will breed greater awareness of conservation methods and just how vital wildlife is to the UK.”
