Aberystwyth University will be taking part in the Plantlife’s ‘No Mow May’ campaign this year as part of its work to promote biodiversity on its campuses.

Lawns and grassed areas on Penglais, Gogerddan and Llanbadarn campuses will not be cut during May as part of the campaign to tackle the global decline of pollinator species such as butterflies and bees, and to help wild plants get a head start on summer.

Work to maintain the university’s sports pitches will continue.
