Beginning with his journey from Malibu to Griffith Park – during which P-22 crossed both the 405 and 101 Freeways on foot – “The Story of P22” examines what the mountain lion eats, how he maps his territory, why and how scientists study him, and the survival challenges that this iconic urban carnivore, and all Southern California’s mountain lions, face in L.A.’s backyard.
The installation will also include personalized storytelling and content from NHMLA’s Miguel Ordeñana, the first wildlife biologist to photograph the elusive mountain lion.
The museum is located at 900 Exposition Blvd. For information, visit nhm.org.
