The Best Answer
Answered by Sarah Ciacci , London, United Kingdom
Yes, of course. We love our green spaces!
Here are some links - I hope you find them useful,

We have lots of 'urban foxes' in East London....
And yes, on the slightly 'wilder' parts of the Thames (Putney, Richmond...Kew) there are lots of birds to be seen, heron, cormorants etc.
Sarah has given some excellent links, but I would also recommend some of the fantastic parks, Greenwich, Victoria, St James, Richmond.
Also, Hampstead Heath is wonderful with outdoor swimming ponds.
The other fascinating place to see wildlife (birds, squirrels etc.) and to explore a bit of history is at the amazing Victorian cemeteries of Abney Park in Stoke Newington, Highgate, Nunhead and Brompton. They are mostly wild and overgrown and very peaceful...not at all macabre!! and really probably a bit of a secret. I am sure that you can do guided tours of them (Highgate has a lot of famous people buried there) or you can just go and sit and soak up teh nature and peace.

Well if by wild life you mean Bears and Lion and Anacondas then, No we don't have creatures like that roaming around this city. But we do have animals and birds around. Even fish :)
Answered by Rafael Torres , Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
hahahahahahah well anacondas we find in our forests in brazil.
But I am sure that by the Thames we may find some bird life..is that right????
