Show Synopsis

Humpback whales breach in New York’s Hudson River. Huge colonies of megabats have made Adelaide their home. African Penguins find sanctuary and safe places to nest in Cape Town. Meet the extraordinary wildlife living in the fastest changing habitat on the planet – our cities. Animals have adjusted surprisingly well to city living. Not only are they applying their natural-born skills to this urban environment, they’re also making amazing adaptations. Inspired by the Cities episode of Planet Earth II, this series explores our cities from a fresh perspective – through the eyes of the animals who live in them. Discover the wilder sides of a world you think you know.
