Last month, we lost the much-loved puma known as P-22. In his impossible journey across two freeways, he stood as a symbol of resilience and won the hearts of Angelenos. In his long 13-year life, he inspired wonder and responsibility for urban wildlife. His legacy includes the 101 Freeway wildlife crossing that will help to preserve his species. There will be a memorial at the Greek Theatre Feb. 4.
The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County houses a permanent exhibit called The Story of P-22, L.A.’s Most Famous Feline about P-22’s remarkable life. https://nhmlac.org/stories/beloved-mountain-lions-legacy.
There has been much discussion about an appropriate memorial for P-22. Maybe a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame or a statue in Griffith Park? I suggest we adjourn our Club’s January 11th meeting in memory of P-22.
