It’s a huge success for a reintroduction program that began four years ago – and an important story about water quality.

LA’s Wildlife Corridors Face Extinction – City Must Act on Building Permits!

Establishing wildlife corridors in our hillsides is an essential step in this effort because you can't protect the wildlife without protecting their habitat.”

That is the goal and without action from the City, the remaining wildlife who live in corridors connecting their habitats could face extinction. Trapped within a small radius with nowhere to go, it would not be long before these animals would be unable to transit for feeding and finding mates. They would slowly die off in what could be a single and lonely demise, often through slow starvation.
