As urbanization sprawls into natural areas, the traditional space for wildlife is diminishing. At the same time, in very unique ways the urban is accommodating certain species of plant and animals. Can it be that in future the urban and natural will be one integrated unit? The book explores briefly a few critical aspects towards this vision. The novel and often incidental urban‐wild arrangements, natural capacity to adapt and human‐animal politics are discussed along with design measures, conservation policies and socioeconomic impacts. One of the significant features of the book has been to appreciate the characteristics of 'wildlife' so as to inject it within urban spaces through a range of methods.
