P-22, the mountain lion famed for roaming the hills of Griffith Park, is the subject of a National Wildlife Federation online informational series that debuted Wednesday.
The series features conversations with wildlife experts, biologists, authors and artists, along with films and musical performances. Episodes of the online, all-ages series will debut throughout the month.
The discussions can be viewed via the P22 Mountain Lion of Hollywood Facebook page, www.facebook.com/p22mountainlionofhollywood/.
The National Wildlife Federation is known as America’s largest conservation organization, working to “ensure wildlife thrive in a rapidly-changing world.” The organization boasts more than 6 million supporters nationwide.
P-22 is arguably the most famous of the mountain lions being tracked by the National Park Service in the Santa Monica Mountains, thanks to his appearances on the front page of the Los Angeles Times. Researchers say the lion managed to cross both the San Diego (405) and Hollywood (101) freeways to reach Griffith Park. Such freeway crossings have traditionally ended badly for lions making the attempt.
