Did you know there are more than 687 native plants, 223 birds and 575 animals that live on Griffith University campuses, including koalas, the Powerful Owl and endangered Phaius orchids?

Our campuses play host to a number of natural environments, and play a crucial role in maintaining biodiversity in South-East Queensland.

To find out more about the animals and plants species at Griffith, view our new biodiversity website where you can take an immersive tour of the Nathan, Logan and Gold Coast campuses.

Griffith University’s Biodiversity Action Group has been working to document the variety of living things that call our campuses home. Within Griffith’s Sustainability Plan, the University has committed to numerous goals that meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs. This includes strategies aligned with the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

One of the primary strategies is supporting rich and healthy biodiversity at Griffith through an array of approaches that reduce threatening processes impacting our wild species such as greenhouse gas emission, pollution and land-clearing. All of this while using our campuses for world-class education that has sustainability at its core.
