Caring for our world means paying attention to what is immediately around us. There are many interesting creatures in the city, with interesting stories. Many of us have observed hares and wondered where they live and perhaps wondered what they do – besides eating our favorite flowers or lettuce plants!
Professor John Wood and his students have been carefully watching urban White-tailed Jackrabbits for almost a quarter-century, and find them fascinating. Albertans are well known as nature lovers. We love our pets, and we love our rivers, lakes, mountains and wildlife. But beyond crows, magpies, robins and coyotes few of us know, and even fewer love, urban wildlife. So what stories can these near-by neighbors tell us? Together we will explore the kind of stance we might take toward urban wildlife – these creatures in our care.
