We begin the second series of the BBC Earth Podcast in bustling, often polluted, but always charismatic cities. In today’s built-up world, it’s easy to forget that nature is often closer than we might think. Meet the two women from a suburban London council estate who bonded over their discovery of some very unexpected guests from the woods at nightfall. Just as humans adapt to rural or urban lifestyles, we explore the ways in which urban animals’ bodies have adapted, alongside their behavioural patterns. Prepare for a heart-warming tale of humans living alongside wild bears as well as the impressive methods conservationists took to lure penguins in Cape Town to a new colony, in order for them to thrive.
