Employees create deer corridor

The Utrecht Science Park is surrounded by grasslands and forests, inhabited by deer and many other animals.

In 2018, as a result of an initiative by Utrecht University employees, a deer corridor was created on the grounds of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine. The corridor connects the Amelisweerd estate and Oostbroek park so that the deer populations living in these areas can interact. A larger grazing area and interaction with other groups of deer is vital for the health of the animals.

With De Groene Machine – a campaign to raise awareness among University Facilities Service employees that came to an end in 2018 – they worked in teams to launch many other projects to improve the sustainability of campus management
