Cities Gone Wild
Cities Gone Wild is an exploration of three savvy urban animals in the United States: black bears, coyotes and raccoons. Each of these carnivores are uniquely equipped to survive and even thrive in the human built landscape at a time when urbanization is decimating habitat for less adapted wildlife. I tracked these animals throughout cities across the United States, documenting the ways in which they have learned to manipulate our infrastructure and resources to their advantage, carving out a successful parallel existence among humans. This story was published in the July 2022 issue of National Geographic Magazine.
