About Urban Wildlife Week and P-22 Day

Los Angeles is throwing P-22 a party! People across Los Angeles and around the world are rallying around the inspiring story of a mountain lion hero known as P-22. This mountain lion, born in the Santa Monica Mountains, made the incredible journey across two of the busiest freeways in America – the 101 and the 405 - to find a home in Los Angeles’ Griffith Park. P-22’s story is fueling a new conservation movement, showing that wildlife and people can coexist in mutual wonderment.
From October 16 - 22 the National Wildlife Federation will be hosting a variety of activities that can engage your students in real life, relevant, and engaging instruction grounded in the international phenomenon of P-22. Please visit our website regularly during Urban Wildlife Week for access to information, lessons, and other activities to engage your students!
