Iowa students enjoy a sustainability day at Swansea University

The Department of Biosciences’ Swansea Ecology Research Team (SERT) welcomed a group of students from the University of Northern Iowa Sustainability Capstone on 21 May 2014.

The students were taken on a walk on campus based on the biodiversity trail. These walks provide an opportunity to highlight the diversity of life that surrounds us all, permit the free and frank exchange of ideas, and to discuss often challenging dilemmas with regards to the conservation of biodiversity and human behaviour. Read their blog to find out what they did.

The walk was part of the ongoing series of walks and talks that SERT provides for the University on themes relating to biodiversity, sustainability and conservation. Iowa students visit each year as part of an exchange programme between our two universities and were hosted by the University Sustainability Team.
