Release Date:

Remember P-22, the Hollywood cougar? Now the Griffith Park cat has its own mini-documentary.

You can watch "P-22: The Griffith Park Mountain Lion" by filmmaker Christine Frey on Vimeo at http://vimeo.com/54805373.  

The film features interviews with local scientists who discovered and are now studying P-22, including USGS Western Ecological Research Center ecologist Erin Boydston.

P-22 was originally photographed by research cameras deployed by Boydston and her colleagues at Cooper Ecological Monitoring, as part of the Griffith Park Connectivity Study, which is examining how wildlife populations move between Griffith Park and adjacent natural areas, including the Santa Monica National Recreation Area.
