Wilderness beats in the heart of California's urban areas.
A mountain lion known as P-22 lives in the heart of Los Angeles. Porpoises cavort in San Francisco Bay after a 65-year absence. And on the Facebook campus in Silicon Valley, Mark Zuckerberg and his staff have provided a home for an endearing family of wild gray foxes. A movement of diverse individuals and communities is taking action to recast wildlife as an integral part of our everyday lives. When Mountain Lions Are Neighbors explores this evolving dynamic between humans and animals, including remarkable stories, like how Californians are welcoming wolves back to the state after the incredible journey of wolf OR-7; how park staff and millions of visitors rallied to keep Yosemite's famed bears wild; and many more tales from across the state. Written by Beth Pratt-Bergstrom of the National Wildlife Federation, these inspiring stories celebrate a new paradigm for wildlife conservation: coexistence.
