Digital PR Summit – Who says NYC doesn’t have Wildlife?

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:

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! 🙂

  1. Congrats on your presentation, and thank you so much for linking to Out Walking the Dog. And yes, I agree that watching urban wildlife is fascinating. People are surprised to learn that coyotes visit Central Park and ravens nest in Queens. Last winter, a seal turned up in the Hudson off Riverside Park and we have healthy populations of peregrine falcons and kestrels. All the best!
