When Mountain Lions Are Neighbors

When Mountain Lions Are Neighbors

$18.00 each

Wildness beats in the heart of California's urban areas. A mountain lion known as P-22 lives in the middle of Los Angeles. Porpoises cavort in San Francisco Bay after a sixty-five year absence. And on the Facebook campus in Silicon Valley, Mark Zuckerberg and his staff have provided a home for an endearing family of wild gray foxes. A movement of diverse individuals and communities is taking action to recast wildlife as an integral part of our everyday lives. When Mountain Lions Are Neighbors explores this evolving dynamic between humans and animals, including remarkable stories like how Californians are welcoming wolves back to the state after the incredible journey of the wolf OR-7, how park staff and millions of visitors rallied to keep Yosemite's famed bears wild, and many more tales from across the state. Written by Beth Pratt-Bergstrom of the National Wildlife Federation, these inspiring stories celebrate a new paradigm for wildlife conservation: coexistence.

Proceeds from the sale of this book directly benefit the NWF's wildlife conservation work in California.

"This delightful book details our ever-evolving relationship with Earth's wildest creatures, promising that peaceful coexistence is possible." - Jennifer Holland, author of the best-selling Unlikely Friendships series.

"Here is a book full of essential wisdom. Natural history, science, politics, and the storyteller's art interweave, inviting us into a new intellectual terrain that inspires knowledge, wonder, delight, and action." - Lyanda Lynn Haupt, author of The Urban Bestiary: Encountering the Everyday Wild.

Product Comments: I met Beth through my work in SNAMP. Very happy to see such a readable book bringing our wildlife to life for the public. Makes me wish we had done a week in the life of a fisher using collaring data. Concern for animals often cloaks wildlife research in secrecy, so it was really nice to see it shared. It builds understanding and empathy. Anne Melrose (Lombardo)

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
