Among the highrises, in the parks and on the shores, New York City is flush with critters—and not just rats and cockroaches. Animals such as black bears, hawks, turtles and raccoons live among the city and in its outskirts. Scientists and volunteers comb the urban crannies to catalog the species that thrive there. What they discover may influence development policies and ensure the future of wildlife in the city.
