SOME six hectares of land in Section 12 adjacent to Universiti Malaya (UM) has over the years turned into a biodiversity haven.

The land has some 30 abandoned bungalows that were once occupied by the professors and lecturers who taught at the university in the 1970s, with the last occupant having moved out in 2011.
