Indonesia, especially in big cities like Jabodetabek, has experienced a high urban expansion. This change becomes, the occurrence of changes in wildlife to urban wildlife that increases the interaction between humans and urban wildlife. This paper examines the importance of urban wildlife in Indonesia by summarizing several multidisciplinary studies in order to gain a comprehensive understanding of the issues and problems that exist in Indonesian urban wildlife and how important the role of government and society is in Urban Human-Wildlife Interaction in Indonesia. Land conversion, ignorance and lack of knowledge about urban wildlife, likewise the influence of economic and political factors in regulation that are issues in urban wildlife in Indonesia. The dimensions are likely to be the main drivers of urban area management, and they need to be properly implemented and integrated in all phases of management.
