Urban Menace: Dogs, monkeys and pigeons in Indian cities

Indian cities are growing at an astonishing rate. By 2030, around 590 million people will live in Indian cities. The urban population in India may go beyond 50% by 2050. This urbanization will come at the cost of biodiversity as concrete structures fill up agricultural fields and forests. While most animals will be driven away by this, a few can adapt and flourish in these new settings. They are dogs, pigeons and monkeys. Why is their story important? Because they are creating a new set of urban problems.
