A quick historical background on the mountain lion in California, including its behaviors, habitats, threats, and its contribution to nature as an apex predator.

To research Mountain Lions, scientists must capture wild lions to collect vital data which can determine potential threats and how we can help protect them.

Like any other animal, mountain lions have a specific way to breed and raise their young in order to ensure survival and continuation of the species.

California provides mountain lions a wide range of habitats and as an extremely adaptable species, they can live anywhere there are adequate resources.

Migration plays a significant role in the survival of the lion species as it helps mix genetics throughout California, making the species stronger as a whole.

At the top of the food chain, the mountain lion helps establish a stable ecosystem which creates a trickle-down effect; their prey can also affect them by exposing them to pathogens and toxins.
