Dawn will talk about the behaviour and ecology of urban mammals. She will explain how badgers, foxes and hedgehogs have adapted to our cities, what opportunities and problems can occur and how they interact with us and each other. Dawn would also like to discuss with the audience how we can coexist with urban mammals, minimizing any problems and maximising benefits of living together.
