Another Tragic Mountain Lion Loss. P-52 Just a Kitten….

Announcement: From the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area
We are saddened to report that the seven-month-old kitten known as P-52 was recently struck and killed by a vehicle on the 118 Freeway. This young male recently lost his mother, P-39, when she was struck and killed on the same freeway a few miles away on December 3rd. This is the 14th known case of a mountain lion killed on a freeway or road in our study area since 2002. Our partners with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife collected the animal’s remains and will be conducting a necropsy in the next few weeks to determine whether the animal was otherwise healthy.
Although this is a very sad turn of events, I hope that our research can shed insight into the lives of these animals and will inspire future conservation efforts to help wildlife move through the region more safely. -Ranger Kate

Don’t Be Fooled! Save Calabasas – NO on Measure F!

Don’t be fooled and buy into the same old developer driven lies, bullying and hyperbole. Preserve Calabasas – it’s viewsheds, biological resources and NEIGHBORHOODS. Vote NO – on Measure F! mikes-general-plan-with-weeping-eagle-mock-up-version-2 Without a victory for “No on F” Tuesday, this image could be the new coversheet for the Calabasas General Plan! Major development across the City will become more rampant than ever before, as the General Plan governing our quality of life and future becomes disregarded over and over again. The current Canyon Oaks development (in the canyon across Las Virgenes from
McDonalds) by the New Home Company  (same builder as the monstrosity Avanti project, next to the Calabasas Swim/Tennis Center), is attempting to get a win on “Yes on F”. Don’t let the developer prevail. Preserve Calabasas by voting NO on Measure F.
