P-22 is the most famous mountain lion in the world, born in the Santa Monica Mountains and currently living in Griffith Park. The Getty Center hosts this discussion, “Picturing Urban Wildlife,” which explores Los Angeles’ wildlife population – including some of the animals that live near the Getty Center and Getty Villa – as well as the art of urban wildlife photography and how photography’s technology has “greatly increased our understanding of animal behavior in densely populated areas.” Moderated by Beth Pratt-Bergstrom, an author and California Director of the National Wildlife Federation, panelists include “citizen scientist” Johanna Turner, National Park Service ecologist Justin Brown and photographer Steve Turner, whose famous image of P-22 in front of the Hollywood sign appeared in National Geographic in 2013.
