In the face of climate unpredictability, Monash has committed itself to improve its campus landscapes to be adaptable and sustainable ecosystems, equipped to thrive into the future.
The Urban Ecosystems Implementation Plan 2017 - 2020 was the first iteration of this policy. Monash will continue to improve campus ecosystems to create greater amenity for humans and improved habitat for flora and fauna.
The Jock Marshal Reserve is a biodiverse ecological facility managed by the JMR Management Committee within the School of Biological Sciences.
The land on which the reserve sits was traditionally occupied by the Bunurong people. The three hectare ecological sanctuary provides a unique Australian conservation experience that is a cornerstone for environmental education and research at Monash University.
