Sustainability Team

Join this free tour to learn all about biodiversity on the Parkville campus and what the University is doing to support it.

The Sustainability Team will showcase biodiversity hotspots on campus including the System Garden and the new Insect Hotel, while giving you the chance to sight unique flora and fauna that you can use to compete in April's UniBioQuest.

UniBioQuest is a global competition running for the month of April where universities compete to collect sightings of biodiversity using the QuestaGame app. Sign up to the competition to upload your sightings of flora and fauna along the tour and be in the running to win some great prizes, including a one-day Phillip Island penguin tour.
