Living With Mountain Lions

Mountain lions still roam the hills of the North Bay, but not as many as there once were. And we humans are not making their lives any easier.

  It was McDonald’s own face to face meeting with a full-sized adult male in the Marin Headlands that fueled her passion for working with the big cats of the world. She was out running above Sausalito near dusk, she recalls, when she had that life-changing encounter.

 

Zara McDonald talks about mountain lions and her Felidae Conservation Fund at the Laguna de Santa Rosa Foundation's Heron Hall on Saturday, September 14, at 3 pm.
