This exhibit by fine art photographer Marc Plouffe features work from his portfolio titled "Doomed by Nature" from his collections themed "In Search of Solitude" and "Lupus Vision", which speak to loneliness, restoration, self-reflection and solitude; a driving force in Plouffe's images.
Cougars and Grizzlies: Sharing Their Path
April 18, 2015 - September 13, 2015
Most Southern California families are unaware that grizzly bears ever roamed what has now become bustling cities like Irvine and Corona. The extinction of the California grizzly bear (Ursus Californicus) in 1924 serves a cautionary tale for those wanting to protect and preserve California's fragile mountain lion (Puma concolor) species. Cougars and Grizzlies: Sharing Their Path will educate and raise environmental awareness by juxtaposing the fate of the California grizzly bear with the future of the state's mountain lion.
In their own exhibit, The Transportation Corridor Agencies (operators of The Toll Roads of Orange County) show visitors how one government agency is committed to keeping mountain lions — and drivers — safe through the use of special fencing; wildlife undercrossings; surveillance; and GPS tracking.
Cougars and Grizzlies: Sharing Their Path is a combined exhibit featuring Mountain Lion from the Center of Southwest Studies and Exhibit Envoy's Bear in Mind.
Cougars and Grizzlies: Sharing Their Path is sponsored by the City of Anaheim, Anaheim Public Utilities, Anaheim Public Works, Disneyland Resort and the Transportation Corridor Agencies.
