Nature conservation on campus

University bees

There’s a buzz on campus: The University of Applied Sciences Emden/Leer hosts a colony of bees on its premises, setting an example for biodiversity. Furthermore, the hive at the university will be fitted with a monitoring system in the future, which will allow the hive to be viewed at any time.

Apple trees

Along the S building, there is a plantation of apple trees, including old, regional apple tree varieties such as the Golden Pearmain from the Pomarium frisae from Ökowerk Emden.

Nest boxes

Perhaps some of you have already noticed them when walking around the university grounds:
There are nest boxes for birds and other animals on some trees, as well as an insect hotel.

Since 1 August 2019, the company “Heinz Janssen GmbH" has switched to environmentally friendly copy paper with the “Blauer Engel” certification in the photocopiers.
