Urban Wildlife ['ûr-bŭn] ['wīld-'līf]
Animals that live in urban areas.

Urban areas support a wide variety of wildlife such as birds, squirrels, raccoons and rodents. As long as food, water, and shelter can be found in an appropriate space, some kind of animal will be able to survive. Green spaces like city parks, greenbelts, gardens, and even your backyard birdfeeder are good wildlife habitat. But as human habitats expand and encroach on native wildlife habitat, more and more deer, moose and coyotes are seen wandering down streets and looking for food in backyards.
