Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area is part of the US National Park system goes from mountains to the sea. The park is home to wildlife including mountain lions, coyotes, bobcats, quail, dolphins, and much more. There are many challenges to protecting wildlife surrounding our urban area in Southern California. The beautiful mountain lion in the above video, identified as P-56, had to be killed because he was attacking domestic livestock.
We have a Wildlife Bridge planned to help protect Mountain Lions as many have been killed trying to cross the freeways in Southern California.
