Cannabis cultivation could threaten Santa Cruz mountain lions.

Mountain lions have called the Santa Cruz Mountains home for millennia. Their sensitivity to human impacts makes them a useful indicator of how cannabis cultivation among the redwoods could impact all wildlife, said Chris Wilmers, ecologist at UC Santa Cruz and head of the Puma Project. The project has been tracking and studying local mountain lions since 2008. Wilmers said he believes that cannabis cultivation may be the most imminent threat to mountain lions in the Santa Cruz Mountains.
