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 and collect vital data which can determine potential threats and how we can help conserve 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 mountain lions survival as it helps mix genetics throughout California, making the species stronger as a whole.

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

Mountain lions are learning to adapt to our increasing presence in nature, which sometimes results in the depredation of domestic animals, and a grim ending for both parties.
