We Heart P-22: A Coloring + Activity Book Celebrating L.A.'s Most Famous Mountain Lion
Meet P-22, the lone mountain lion that lives in L.A.’s Griffith Park. Originally from the western Santa Monica Mountains, this nimble puma has faced much adversity to travel to and survive in one of North America’s largest urban parks. Though he is by nature a solitary animal, P-22’s continued survival proves that the city is a dynamic place where animals and people can coexist. This makes him an apt ambassador of urban wildlife.
We Heart P-22 pays tribute to this remarkable animal with educational stories and activities that wildlife lovers of all ages can enjoy—from coloring pages and puzzles to cutout puppets and a fold-out board game—by more than 50 contributors, including some of P-22’s closest friends from the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, the National Wildlife Federation, the National Park Service, and Friends of Griffith Park.

All sales proceeds benefit the National Wildlife Federation’s #SaveLACougars campaign, currently raising funds to build the Wallis Annenberg Wildlife Crossing outside of Los Angeles. The wildlife crossing at Liberty Canyon is quickly advancing toward completion. Building on significant historic preservation efforts, we are close to reconnecting a vital habitat corridor to help save a local population of mountain lions and ensure a future for all area wildlife. With continued fundraising efforts, the crossing construction will break ground in spring of 2022, and construction will be completed by the end of 2024.
