The mountain lion named P-22, which is usually found for travel in Los Angeles, freeways, expressways, and spending time in the park, it is a bit of a legend in the usa. However, it is also seen by environmentalists as a symbol of the threats to the wildlife in a state known for expansive development, and a spaghetti-style roads.

Now, environmentalists and local transportation officials are working on plans for the construction of a mostly privately-funded wildlife crossing on US 101 in the Southern part of California, as a way of trying to fend off the extinction of the mountain lion and other animals more space to roam.

The new animal overpass, and the second of its kind in the country, it will also have coyotes, deer, lizards, snakes, and other animals to a safe on-ramp to the wide open spaces, and improved access to food and potential mates.

Scientists tracking mountain lions fitted with GPS-collars have reportedly found the roads to catch the animal in the Santa Monica Mountains, which prevent them from mating.

“They will not be able to get out of here for the dates, and the cats can’t get to the data. … And for those of us in the LA area, is to have a good prospect of being destroyed by the traffic, it is something we can all relate to,” said Pratt.

The result of this isolation, the researchers say, is threatening the genetic breakdown of the mountain lions. Loss of habitat has driven the people of the future, which could lead to extinction within the last 15 years, except for the big cats to have regular contact with other population groups, increasing their diversity, according to a new study, published this year, The Associated Press reports.
