Locals encouraged to make most of wildlife

Local residents, as well as visitors to Aberdeen City and Shire, are being encouraged to make the most of wildlife opportunities in the area and beyond, as part of a major UK marketing campaign launched today by VisitScotland and Scottish Natural Heritage, to celebrate the Year of Natural Scotland 2013.

VisitScotland and Scottish Natural Heritage have selected five of Scotland’s iconic indigenous species for the UK marketing campaign which will focus on Red Deer, Golden Eagle, Harbour Seal, Otter and Red Squirrels.

The joint initiative aims to inspire people to get and out and about and also visit a dedicated website www.visitscotland.com/big5 which contains information about where to see the Big 5 in Scotland.
