    Description

    The badgers of Brighton's most exclusive postcode. The water voles of Glasgow. The Black Country bats who have found a haven in old industrial tunnels. The frogs and newts which thrive in the shadow of Peterborough's industrial estates. The peregrine falcons nesting on the ledges of tower blocks. The suburban stronghold of Britain's endangered red squirrels. The mosquitoes found on the London Underground and nowhere else on earth.

    In Wild City Florence Wilkinson takes us on a fascinating journey into why we should engage with our fellow urban species. What we might see - if we only take the time to look - and how nature is adapting to human-engineered environments in unexpected and ingenious ways.

    As more and more of our planet is urbanised, we humans still feel that primal pull to connect with our wilder roots. This gorgeously lyrical book invites us to celebrate the natural world, while also offering a clear-eyed glimpse into the challenges faced by urban plants and animals as cities grow and sprawl. 

    Wild City offers a compelling manifesto for city wildlife, suggesting how we might take action to protect the often-overlooked residents who live alongside us.
