This stunning metropolis has a flavor of two continents: Asia and Europe, divided and connected by the Bosporus straits. Though the Bosporus is one of the world's busiest shipping routes you can still see three species of dolphin here, while wild boar are known to swim across! For migrating birds Istanbul is a toehold as they head north for the European spring. Some animals have come to stay: exotic parrots, freed by customs officers, wild wolves invading from the east and mating with city strays, and beech martens, brought here by Egyptian traders and now a permanent fixture in the grand bazaar.
