Nature in the city

Danielle Woodward follows a wildlife trail in London’s Bankside


How many of us actually thinks about the wildlife that lives side by side with us in the city? The London Wildlife Trust is the only charity dedicated solely to protecting the capital’s wildlife and wild spaces, and I joined a tour around the culturally rich area of Bankside, south of the River Thames, and kept my eyes peeled for four-legged creatures. Our guide pointed out the plants, trees and birds that thrive in the green spaces, and I learned how London is a ‘green city’ with around 48 per cent surfaced in vegetation, rivers and still waters. This supports natural spaces and habitats, making sure thousands of species, from algae to mammals, thrive in London’s incredible biodiversity. It’s good to know there’s a strong connection to nature, despite the urbanisation.
