Why It Matters

[Wildlife rehabilitation] "is a process of coming to know something quite unlike you, to understand it well enough not only to keep it alive but also to put it back, like a puzzle piece, into the gap in the world it left behind."

 -- Helen Macdonald, author of H is for Hawk

As a precursor to our Wild at Heart - at Home virtual celebration next week, P22 Day, is TODAY leading into urban wildlife weekend. P22 is the famous, resident Griffith Park cougar who successfully crossed and is now hemmed in by two dangerous freeways, the 405 and 101 in the heart of Los Angeles, CA.

On behalf of P22 Day and in celebration of connecting wildlife and people to one another, filmmaker Tony Lee, is making his documentary, The Cat That Changed America, available on www.youtube.com/watch?v=951nelxkNH0&t=13s through Oct. 31. Don't miss out on it! In 2018, we sponsored this film at the SLO International Film Festival. In addition, Tony published a new children's book, The Cat That Changed America, and the paperback and kindle will be available this week for purchase on Amazon and Barnes & Noble at www.amazon.com/dp/B08HKZHX3V/. Next week, we will have a number of other wildlife-themed films to enjoy during our celebration week. We hope you tune in here!!
