Urban and suburban environments now account for a large portion of our country, and wildlife often integrate into and adapt to these environments. Many of these insects and animals carry out vital functions necessary for the maintained health of an ecosystem. To maintain environmental health, we must be aware of our role on a larger environmental scale and actively work to conserve and promote a coexistence with urban wildlife. In order to accomplish this, data must be collected and interpreted to create active management plans for numerous species, and student and faculty researchers at the Urban Wildlife Research Program aim to foster and promote these ideas.
