Pumas thrive when they can range from mountain top to mountain top. Unfortunately, in the Santa Cruz Mountains, their range is interrupted frequently, making it difficult for the species to survive. In fact, only 40 pumas are known to be active in the region. We have a lot of work to do to protect and expand their habitat, but how do pumas develop and grow? Read about the life cycle of pumas and their families over time.
If you love Big Basin, please consider this: rebuilding Big Basin can pioneer a new model for California’s state parks, just as Big Basin accomplished more than a century ago. We believe that in this moment of indelible transformation, Big Basin can lead the way for the California State Park system to enter into a new era of public parks–one that is desperately needed.
