The mountain lions P-22 and P-55 have become unlikely stars of Los Angeles nightlife—and symbols of the complicated relationship between nature and cities.

This panel examines the intersection of the built environment and Los Angeles’s natural habitat as the region prepares for a hotter and more populous future that can challenge the dynamics between urban environments, wildlife and nature.

Lori Bettison-Varga, president of the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, Mia Lehrer, landscape designer of Mia Lehrer + Associates, and Ryan Harrigan, assistant professor for the UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability, join moderator Mark Gold, associate vice chancellor for environment and sustainability at UCLA.
