Aberdeen is situated on the North East coast of Scotland, and is a unique location that combines both coastal and inland habitats for biodiversity to flourish in. The local area boasts some of the most beautiful scenery in Scotland, which is a haven for plants and animals alike.

Many precious ecosystems are under threat, both locally and across the country. We aim to help people understand and value their local area, and discover the wildlife that we are so lucky to have on our doorstep.

The University has put together this beautiful guide to help students and others discover the Nature on Our Doostep.
