The zoology of dreamers is far
poorer than the zoology of the Maker.
Jorge Luis Borges
The Urban Beast Project attempts to document and exhibit the almost
extinct plight of wild and feral animals living in the midst of
our urban areas. Using adaptive skills, these beasts carved out
a new "natural" system of living from the peripheries of buildings,
roads and parks. While most of the Urban Beasts described within
have met the end of their species, it is our hope that with exposure
and attention many other Beasts will be saved.
