Happy Earth Day 2020 from The Cat That Changed America. May we use this day to celebrate our Earth and cherish all wild things with tolerance and gratitude. For us to co-exist with wildlife may we appreciate that all animals have a place on Earth and that we are part of that. To be truly connected to nature we should be open and willing to share our spaces on Earth. P22 made an incredible journey from his birth place in the Santa Monica Mountains, crossing two freeways the 101 and the 405, in search of a new home. He finally settled in Griffith Park. To find our more about his adventures read a new book or watch the documentary based on his life:
Have you wondered how biologists have been able to capture photographs of animals like P22 at night?

A recent article in the Thousand Oaks Acorn, close to the site of the proposed wildlife crossing over the 101 at Liberty Canyon, suggests to “Move (mountain) lions, don’t build bridge”. It goes on to cite that the cost of the bridge, estimated at $88 million, would be put to better use feeding homeless and hungry kids in LA. It also proposes to move mountain lions as a cheaper and quicker solution to the problem that these endangered cats face in the wild.
It’s a common enough cited argument, but the reality of moving lions just doesn’t work. Moving a mountain lion into another area will probably mean moving it into another male’s territory – and these big cats will fight to the death over territory.
To hear the arguments further and the reasons for building the wildlife crossing, you can now watch The Cat That Changed America on Vimeo on Demand.
