Discover the secret lives of more than 30 extraordinary creatures that share our cities. From red foxes sneaking rides on London buses to leopards prowling the backstreets of Mumbai, this book explores the clever ways animals have adapted to the urban environment and explains how you can help protect our wild neighbours.
Crammed with buildings, traffic and people, urban spaces are the last place you'd expect to see wildlife. But all kinds of animals live alongside us in the hidden corners of our towns and cities - from teeny ants living under pavement cracks to pick-pocketing monkeys and spotted hyenas being fed by locals.
Within these pages, you'll travel from city to city, across six different continents, meeting just some of these amazing animals. There are tips on where and when you might see them, what signs to look for and how you can help make our cities more nature-friendly places. You'll also see the conservation status of each animal, from those of least concern to species which are endangered.
