Abstract

The world today is becoming increasingly urbanized; this is the cause of many new challenges that previous generations have not had to face. Some of the most obvious and crucial problems are air and water pollution. As cities grow, the need for more cars and related industrial activities increases leading to an increase in air pollution, the same can be said for water pollution as areas become increasingly urbanized it becomes more difficult to manage waste leading to dangerous runoff into rivers and streams. Along with these troubling environmental problems, urbanization can also lead to a many social problems such as increased poverty and crime as well as the development of slums in underprivileged neighborhoods. With the persistence of these huge environmental and social problems it is easy to see how one major by-product of urbanization may get overlooked, and that is the increasing amount of interaction between humans and wildlife.
