UCL joins forces with London Wildlife Trust
15 February 2013
UCL has become the first university to sign up for corporate membership of London Wildlife Trust.
UCL will work closely with the London Wildlife Trust to devise a Biodiversity Action Plan. This will indicate ways in which UCL can maintain and improve the biodiversity and sustainability of the university’s urban estate. Additionally, London Wildlife Trust will coordinate with UCL’s Volunteering Services Unit to provide regular volunteering opportunities on the Trust’s nature reserves.
Tony Overbury, a Sustainability Manager at UCL, said of the partnership, “UCL has a vital role to play in supporting urban biodiverse habitat in London and we are really pleased to forge a partnership with London Wildlife Trust to help us achieve this.”
