Students from Barbados, China, France, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Spain and the United Kingdom thinned out existing woodland, created a new wildflower meadow, and planted various bulbs in the surrounding area.
This work will help to create a habitat which will support all kinds of pollinators, allowing them to thrive. Given the concerning decline of insect populations globally, creating and supporting these habitats is absolutely crucial.
Elspeth, Reserves Officer at Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, says: 'I would like to thank all the students and staff from Leeds uni who worked tirelessly, lopping, sawing, litter picking, raking, planting, and sowing to enhance the site for wildlife. What a difference a day makes!'.
