Urban Biodiversity and Sustainability Organizations

  • BatWorld NoVa: A local bat rehabilitation center
  • Wild Neighbors: The Humane Society of the United State’s urban wildlife site.
  • Casey Trees: A wonderful DC non-profit whose mission is to restore the District’s tree canopy
  • City Wildlife: DC’s first wildlife rehabilitation center
  • DC Environmental Network: A great, local non-profit that works to strengthen DC by protecting and restoring DC’s environment
  • Project Coyote: A national organization that focuses on finding solutions to how humans and coyotes can coexist, both in urban and rural areas.


  • Wild Neighbors: The Humane Approach to Living with Wildlife (2nd Edition), by John Hadidian (et al.) is an excellent how-to guide if you run into trouble with wildlife. I highly recommend it!
  • Human-Wildlife Conflict: Complexity in the Marine Environment, edited by Megan Draheim (that’s me!), Francine Madden, Julie-Beth McCarthy, and E.C.M. Parsons, is a series of case studies on marine-based human-wildlife conflict (HWC), but it’s relevant for terrestrial HWC as well. We focused on looking at the social drivers of HWC, and the way that so much HWC is actually conflict between humans about wildlife.

    May i reblog your article Pigeons: Rats with wings…? We have similar perceptions – problem animals being branded as ‘vermin’

    Sure! That would be great. I actually came across your blog a while ago and have been meaning to reach out to you, since it looks like we are interested in similar things. I’m writing my dissertation right now, so a lot of blogging has been put on hold until it’s done.

    Thanks! Yes, similar situation – different animals but same quest to find ways to co-exist.
