Hello readers, a few weeks ago filmmaker Anna Dale posted the first episode of something we’re calling Angeleno Stories. I posted it on several social media platforms but it didn’t dawn on me until a couple of days ago that I should probably post it here, on my website. So here it is!
“Intrepid cougar tracker Robert Martinez sits down with writer and SoCal explorer Eric Brightwell to share some astounding L.A. wildlife stories, footage, and photos. Many Angelenos are aware that the built environment has displaced deer, coyote, skunk, and raccoons; more recently, the arrival of lone mountain lion P-22 in Hollywood‘s Griffith Park has helped advocates publicize the plight of big cats in the overdeveloped Santa Monica Mountains. But Robert and his lions inhabit a different Los Angeles: a secret kingdom overlooking the city, where bears, foxes, eagles, and bobcats act out their daily dramas relatively undisturbed, as they have for thousands of years.”
