Our Local Wildlife

Our urban garden is home to a variety of animals, if you know where to look. From birds to invertebrates, you can spot different types of animal.

Explore the adaptations that every animal has in order to survive in a particular habitat, such as being able to blend in with its surroundings to hide from predators.

Join Duncan as he reveals how adaptations help animals to survive, with the help of the garden habitats at Glasgow Science Centre's Outer Space.
