Feral Cities : Adventures with Animals in the Urban Jungle

Feral Cities : Adventures with Animals in the Urban Jungle

Description

We tend to think of cities as a realm apart, somehow separate from nature, butnothing could be further from the truth. In "Feral Cities," Tristan Donovan digs below the urban gloss to uncover the wild creatures that we share our streets andhomes with, and profiles the brave and fascinating people who try to manage them.Along the way readers will meet the wall-eating snails that are invading Miami, theboars that roam Berlin, and the monkey gangs of Cape Town. From feral chickens andcarpet-roaming bugs to coyotes hanging out in sandwich shops and birds crashing intoskyscrapers, "Feral Cities" takes readers on a journey through streets and neighborhoodsthat are far more alive than we often realize, shows how animals are adjusting to urbanliving, and asks what messages the wildlife in our metropolises have for us."
