Arizonans for Wildlife Signature Collection

Wild cats in Arizona need our help.

MLF will be joining Arizonans for Wildlife on a campaign to end the trophy hunting and trapping of all wild cat species within the state, including mountain lions, jaguars, ocelots, bobcats, and lynx.

Wilton Lion Workshop and Pen Build

Some of the most important work MLF does is community outreach — and that's exactly what we did on January 6th in Wilton!

Wilton, located about half an hour southeast of Sacramento, is a rural area full of domestic animals such as cattle, sheep, and goats. We gathered at the Wilton Community Center on Saturday morning and were pleased to have an audience of over 50 people show up . . .

We're so thankful that the city of Los Angeles has forever designated October 22nd as P-22 Day, cementing this incredible individual into the minds and hearts of wildlife lovers worldwide.
