Are we currently in a mass-extinction event? If so, what's causing it? Join one of our special tours of the Zoology Museum as part of Climate Week North East 2024.

During Climate Week North East 2024, join us on "Extinction Tours" of the University of Aberdeen's Zoology Museum, guided by trained student volunteers from the University of Aberdeen Zoology & Biological Science Society.

Tour leaders will be looking at species at risk of extinction in both the upper and lower galleries, and discussing the major issues plaguing our global biodiversity. Our student volunteers are passionate about zoology and can't wait to share their passion with you!
