Our cities are a mosaic of 'micro-habitats' providing food, water, green spaces and places to breed - the natural equivalent of the five-star hotel. Hence the presence of a huge range of animals, from badgers to bats, hawkmoths to herons, and sparrows to seals. In this ebook, we aim to prove that the wildlife doesn't simply survive in urban areas, it thrives. We look at the history of urban wildlife and city dwellers' enduring love of nature. Our illustrated spotter's guide helps kids and adults identify what's out there. We pinpoint wildlife hotspots across the UK and three 'nature champions' reveal what inspires their commitment to urban wildlife.
