It’s only fitting that the world’s most famous mountain lion lives in the city of stars, but it hasn’t been an easy ride for P-22. The mountain lion has crossed multiple freeways and found himself stuck in the urban green space of Griffith Park…or has he? We talk with National Wildlife Federation California Director Beth Pratt about why the cougar’s home is his just as much as it is ours, the wildlife crossing that could save millions of animal lives and millions of dollars, and why she has P-22’s face tattooed on her arm.
