Resident Biodiversity

Resident Biodiversity is a project that hopes to increase urban invertebrate biodiversity and raise awareness of biodiversity as an issue among the student population at Anglia Ruskin University. Areas of grass were left to grow in some student residential gardens and diversified with added wildflowers, which resulted in a measurable increased of types of invertebrate families.

On occasion of Cambridge Sustainability Residency 2016, artist and Cambridge School of Art student Julie Rossiter, artist Marina Velez and researcher Geoff Morley collaborated to create a response to these wild areas. The works inspired by this project are present in these postcards and can also be seen in diverse locations across campus. If you wish to receive postcards please let us know, they are free of charge and absolutely beautiful.
