    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 peregrine falcons nesting on the ledges of tower blocks. 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 proposes a compelling manifesto for city wildlife, suggesting how we might take action to protect the often-overlooked residents who live alongside us. City-dwellers, it’s time to meet your neighbours.
