Campus biodiversity

The Landscape Management Division of USJ is responsible for taking care of the campus grounds and consider the following aspects while improving and maintaining the campus green spaces:

  • Rain gardens for rainwater harvesting
  • Native plant forestry
  • Germplasm conservation gardens
  • Planting climate tolerant exotics, non- invasive species and aquatic flowering plants
  • Irrigation system management
  • Soil nutrient management programs
  • Sustainable lighting, trash recycling and use of biopesticides
  • Animal diversity conservation through phytodiversity conservation

When conducting replanting works the team gives a priority to native, indigenous and exotic non-invasive species which are resistant to adverse climate conditions such as heavy rainfall and strong winds in addition to having considerable ecological value and low maintenance.
