In Southern California, public and private partners are leading a campaign to build the world's largest wildlife overpass—the Wallis Annenberg Wildlife Crossing.
The core project team overseeing the project includes Caltrans, the National Park Service, the Santa Monica Mountains Conservatory/ Mountain Recreation and Conservation Authority, the Resource Conservation District of the Santa Monica Mountains, and the National Wildlife Federation.
The Wallis Annenberg Wildlife Crossing broke ground in 2022. Learn more about the crossing partnership and the #SaveLACougars campaign at the link below.
The Cougar Conservancy is working in partnership with the #SaveLACougars campaign by providing educational opportunities for the public, outreaching to communities living with cougars, and promoting coexistence strategies.
The Cougar Conservancy is a non-profit organization based out of Los Angeles, California that provides expert recommendations and direct support to state residents seeking to prevent or resolve conflicts that may arise between our communities and cougars in the landscapes we share. Our Conflict Task Force collaborates with communities and individuals to implement reliable cougar conflict prevention techniques that serve people while conserving cougars. We aim to empower people with training and education that promotes coexistence with cougars and other wildlife essential to our ecosystems.
The Cougar Conservancy partners with the National Wildlife Federation
on a Docent Program that will inform, engage, and empower members of the community.
"Korinna has proven herself to be such a dedicated force for saving our mountain lions, whether it be working with livestock owners to find solutions, educating the public about coexisting, or advocating for protections for our threatened populations. At the National Wildlife Federation (NWF), we take very seriously the responsibility to provide the tools needed for people to coexist safely with the wildlife we work to protect. I am excited about partnering with her organization as part of our #SaveLACougars campaign to assist with the needed outreach and education about living safely with mountain lions. The Cougar Conservancy is going to provide critical services to help ensure these magnificent animals have a future."
