The 5th Annual P-22 Day & International Urban Wildlife Festival
The P-22 story and #SaveLACougars
Hey friends! I’m P-22, the world’s most famous mountain lion. I live in Los Angeles and hang out under the Hollywood sign. I made a dangerous journey crossing two of the busiest freeways in America—it was really scary!—to find a new home. I have lived here since 2012, surrounded by 10 million people, and we all get along. We can coexist, people!
Welcome to my official party—the 5th annual P-22 Day Festival! Last year over 8,000 people attended at my home in Griffith Park. This year, I am inviting the world to attend virtually—let’s all celebrate how you humans help protect us wildlife across the globe.
My human friends have developed something really special for this festival—P-22’s Wildlife Wonderland! It’s such a great way to explore the wild world and learn about how to coexist with mountain lions (and other wildlife) like me!
It’s also a chance for you to make a difference. This festival is from the National Wildlife Federation, and their #SaveLACougars campaign works to make sure mountain lions like me don’t go extinct in the Los Angeles area. They are working with partners to build the world’s largest wildlife crossing to help save us. Gives me all the feels.
Learn more about the cougar cause at www.savelacougars.org. If you shop or donate at the festival, it all goes to help cougars like me! And be sure to check out all the other featured groups and support them if you can.
Have fun at the festival! Love, P-22
