The university aims to restore about 10 acres of wetlands to functioning ecosystems through the Royal Roads University Wetland Ecosystem Restoration Project. The SAFE Fund uses student donations to fund various campus projects, such as a new recycling center in the main cafeteria. 

Best Natural Feature 

The 565 acres of old growth forest is a very popular feature, as well as the nearby ocean that gives the campus an ocean frontage.
