What does "natural" mean in Hamilton Harbour? Or in the Golden Horseshoe in general? We've transformed a truly massive area, and that's changed nature, but it hasn't eliminated it. Some species - racoons, seagulls, etc, thrive off the conditions we create.

I'll never argue against increasing habitat for indigenous species, but attacking "nuisance" species like cormorants or deer doesn't accomplish that. Having wildlife in the city is a good thing.

Is there a way to deal with the guano that doesn't involve attacking the birds themselves? A large number of islands off South America were mined dry in the colonial period because it made amazing fertilizer.
