Robin Parks of The Mountain Lion Foundation presents the facts and fallacies about these great and wondrous creatures who roam our own backyards.

Parks retired from the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) in 2004 after a 25 year career in federal law enforcement. Robin's work required he work and live in various locations in the U.S., Europe, Mexico, and on U.S. Navy ships at sea.

A life long admirer of the great cats, he began doing volunteer work at animal sanctuaries in California and elsewhere in 1999 where he first encountered captive mountain lions. This later led him to the Mountain Lion Foundation where he has been a field volunteer on several projects. He now is very much involved in reaching out to law enforcement agencies who are so often the first responders to cougar incidents.
