Mission Statement

Documenting gray fox behavior in the Palo Alto Baylands in order to identify and restore healthy habitats and develop the wildlife corridors necessary for their survival. As a result, UWRP helps San Francisco Bay area people and wild nature coexist through research, advocacy, and public education.


Founded in 2009 by Bill Leikam, aka "The Fox Guy," the Urban Wildlife Research Project (UWRP) emerged from a mesmerizing encounter with gray foxes in California's San Francisco Baylands. Witnessing the struggle of wildlife amidst urbanization, UWRP now focuses on the resurgence and habitat needs of these foxes, aiming for their coexistence with urban development. Our mission unfolds through scientific research, preserving Bill's extensive data, community outreach, and advocating for wildlife corridors. Through dedication and public education, we're committed to a harmonious future where humans and nature thrive together. Join us in protecting our urban wildlife.
