Yesterday I presented with a number of talented PR professionals at the Digital PR Summit in New York City. It was a great experience and I learned so much from everyone there. Special thanks to my co- panelists, Johna Burke and Tim Marklein.
Here are my slides from the event:
I Heart New York City’s Wildlife
What I love about the city, besides the amazing energy that everyone talks about, is the fact that wildlife is ever present. I notice them slinking behind trash cans, climbing Central Park trees, or weaving around your feet (pigeons). I find their adaptation to city-life fascinating. And where it’s lacking on the biodiversity, fragmented habitats and the animals that survive in them are still incredibly interesting to me.
If you live in a city and want to learn neat ways to get involved or ways to help the local wildlife, here are a few sites I recommend:
- Help Project Pigeon Watch
- Visit NYC Wildlife’s website
- Anything from Audubon in NY
- Good Ol’ Eel Watching (Just awesome)
- Check out the Out Walking the Dog blog for wildlife sightings in NYC
So yes, who thinks there isn’t any wildlife in NYC? I certainly know there is…and I also know those PR people can add the wild to life any day!
