Description

The Cat that Changed America

A Fundraiser for Native Animal Rescue

The Cat that Changed America is a new documentary film about the most famous mountain lion in America named P22. P22 was discovered living in Griffith Park, right in the heart of Los Angeles, near the Hollywood sign. Born in the Santa Monica Mountains, he miraculously crossed two of the busiest freeways in America, the 405 and the 101, before settling in Griffith Park. P22 is now trapped – hemmed in by freeways and urban sprawl – with little chance of ever finding a mate. Through the plight of P22, this film addresses solutions to two serious problems that wildlife face: the need for safe wildlife freeway crossings and the elimination of rat poisons that are harming native wildlife that consume poisoned rats and nearly killed P22.

The film will be followed by a lively onstage conversation, moderated by Tai Moses, with two of the wildlife experts from the film. The participants are:

  • Tai Moses, Santa Cruz nature writer and activist, and founder of SCRATS (Santa Cruz Raptors are the Solution)

  • Beth Pratt-Bergstrom, California Director of the National Wildlife Federation and the leader of the Save LA Cougars campaign to build the Liberty Canyon Wildlife Crossing

  • Joel Schulman, co-founder of Poison Free Malibu

Bring your kids; this is a family friendly film.

Proceeds will benefit Native Animal Rescue, the Santa Cruz County non-profit dedicated to the protection, rescue, rehabilitation, and release of injured, sick, and orphaned native wildlife.
