Laurent Geslin (France) undertook the two major missions in urban environments - peregrine falcons in Barcelona and red foxes in London. Peregrines live and breed in Gaudi's Sagrada Familia (unfinished) cathedral and Laurent was able to capture a wide range of behaviour. He also visited the Vatican City. No other missions were specifically based in urban environments but WWoE photographers captured images of wildlife living close to humans including storks which habitually nest on buildings in many parts of Europe and wild boar that wander into town from woods surrounding Berlin.
