COST: Non-members $10 Member $5"Until 11,000 years ago, Los Angeles was home to a very different diversity of wildlife. Many species still survive today, but of the five large cats that roamed this prehistoric city only one remains: the mountain lion. Learn what caused the extinction of these legendary predators and what new challenges exist for the mountain lion’s survival, including P-22, the puma of Griffith Park. Discover how our understanding of modern day animal behavior has been influenced by new technology, such as camera traps and GPS collar technology, and how conservation efforts have been influenced by wildlife photography as well as federal-and nonprofit-led conservation efforts. Join us for a panel discussion with Steve Winter, National Geographic wildlife photographer, Jeff Sikich, carnivore biologist with the National Park Service, Emily Lindsey, Assistant Curator at the La Brea Tar Pits and Museum, and Miguel Ordeñana, wildlife biologist and Citizen Scientist Coordinator at the NHMLA in conversation with moderator Thomas Curwen, award-winning staff writer for the Los Angeles Times, as they delve into the topic of feline extinction and survival in Los Angeles. Read more about NHMLA's special exhibit about P-22 here." source NHM website.
