National Geographic Channel and Nat Geo Wild will uncover the wildlife lurking in urban spaces in a three-hour special entitled Urban Jungle, set to premiere on August 3.

Big cat tracker Boone Smith (pictured) will travel to Moscow, New York and Mumbai to reveal the leopards, coyotes, bears and bats who are moving into urban areas as a result of city sprawl.

The special – produced by National Geographic Television (NGT) – will premiere as a simulcast on both Nat Geo Wild and National Geographic Channel on August 3 at 8 p.m. EST/PST. Urban Jungle will air internationally this winter.

Executive producers for NGT are Karen Bass and Geoff Luck, while Allan Butler is exec producing for National Geographic Channel.
