Mountain lions are America's iconic wild cat. What better way to celebrate them than to join us at Oakland Zoo's Lion Appreciation Day!

Mountain lions in the United States are faced with numerous threats including trophy hunting, habitat loss and degradation, vehicle collisions, and much more. In California, mountain lions can be killed for attacking pets, livestock and hobby animals. While at the zoo, we will be sharing some tips and tricks for coexisting with these native predators!

Admission is to the event itself is free. The only cost will be for admission into the zoo.

We look forward to seeing you there!
