The Nature of Things Nature's Cleanup Crew

To us, it’s garbage. To them, it’s dinner. There are some busy scavengers who live among us — vultures, ants, foxes, opossums and others. Meet the unsung animal heroes who share our urban spaces and clean up our mess. Debunking some myths along the way, this documentary helps us learn what adaptations they have evolved for this “messy” job, what benefits they can provide us, and how us humans can work with them so they can do their job even better.
