As our population grows so does the opportunity for us to come into contact with wildlife, and for wildlife to come into contention with us. With living space in high demand and short supply, urban wildlife is often forced to make unfortunate choices. Problems like mice beneath the floorboards of a restaurant, or birds nesting on the inside of a furnace stack, can pose a serious risk to public health and public safety. Sadly, when faced with these situations we've no choice but to eradicate the problem and ensure a preventative for the future.
As a tribute to "London's most urban woodland," Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park, The Wild, Wild East presents a picture of how wildlife can flourish in a city environment once our conflict with the animal kingdom for living space has ceased, and those places reserved for our mortal remains are turned into homes for a number of its subjects.
