More and more animals are moving from the countryside to the city. What kind of animals are leaving their natural habitat and why?
URBN ANML provides information about our animal neighbors in the city of Zurich and how we can best live side by side.
Hi peeps, I am Bea. Unlike my relatives, I do not produce honey, because I am a wild bee. I am very hardworking and help to save the world! Without me there would not be so many different plants! Nevertheless, people try to kill me, although I do not hurt them. They confuse me with the aggressive wasps. This is annoying!
Hey, I’m Daisy and soon I will have my babies! Yey! I used to live on Lake Zurich. It was quite busy there, especially in the summer! Because of the kids, my husband and I were looking for something quieter. We now live in a small garden. However, as soon as the kids are big enough, we will go back to the lake. I hope they survive the trip….
Hello, my name is Henrietta. I am a hedgehog lady and I also live in the city. I hide in gardens and parks, because there is a lot of food for me. But I am afraid of those things on four wheels that move so fast. I have already lost many of my friends because of them.
Hello everyone, I am Peter, but my friends call me Pit. I live in Zurich with about 16000 other pigeons. I love to explore the city during the day. I am a guurrrmet and like to be fed by people, although they shouldn’t. My favorite things are bread and stale popcorn – this is sooo yummy!
Hi everybody, I am Sam. I am very nimble and love action, that’s why I live in the city. There is always something going on! When I’m bored, I eat rubber parts of cars. That drives people crazy – haha! Apart from that fun, it’s warm and cozy there.
