“I truly believe mountain lions saved my life and I feel obligated to try to give back and conserve this amazing, misunderstood species.”
For Savannah Rose, tracking America’s most secretive apex predator is more than a passion. Taking photographs of mountain lions has been her path to healing after a tragedy upended her life.
Deeply depressed, she was absent mindedly watching documentaries when a movie about mountain lion biology came on. When she learned it was filmed near her home in Jackson Hole, she knew she had to see one of these animals for herself, but she was out of shape and sick in body and mind.
In this webinar, Savannah will share a deeply personal journey, working on her physical and mental health, through her many failures with tracking lions, to finally being mentored to walk in the footsteps of these amazing cats. We will also talk about advocacy for wildlife and the current status of mountain lions in Wyoming.
Content note: Please be advised that this webinar will include a discussion of depression, PTSD, suicide and substance abuse.
