Listening to Foxes Listening to Us - Urban Fox Safari

Thursday 3rd July 2014
Departure: Gillet square, Dalston, Hackney 8:30 pm

Foxes are everywhere in London. The urban fox has held a place on the streets and in urban legend for centuries, yet they seem to remain an eternal surprise to the ears and eyes of many of the city’s inhabitants and visitors. Where do foxes come from? Where do they go to? What do they do?

Urban wildlife scientist Marina Pacheco from the Mammal Society and artist Antoine Bertin will lead this fox safari through the streets of Dalston, guiding us through wild parking lots and urban gardens to learn more about the animal. Juice Vocal Ensemble will accompany the tour in an attempt to entice foxes towards the group using their voices.

Free event - Listening to Foxes Listening to Us - 3rd July 2014
