Steve Winter

This image was taken for the first ever @natgeo wild cougar story. I was looking for an image that spoke to the fact that as our cities expand we move into the forests and grasslands - the homes of animals. The photo sparked a movement to protect southern California’s last cougars and other wildlife in two large protected areas bisected by the 101 Freeway north of L.A. It will be the World’s Largest Wildlife Overpass—and will be completed by 2022.
