Benefit Wildlife in Style

Looking to wear your love of local Los Angeles wildlife on your sleeve (or maybe, more literally, your chest)?

Our friends at Runyon Canyon Apparel have finally restocked their P-22 Citizen tees, and mine is fast becoming a favorite in my wardrobe rotation.

Like all of the Runyon shirts, these are wicking performance tees that are great on the trail whether you’re hiking or trail running – and 50% of these shirts go to benefit the nonprofit Citizens for Los Angeles Wildlife (CLAW). CLAW is not only working hard to establish wildlife corridors in the more developed eastern Santa Monica Mountains, but was also instrumental in getting the Los Angeles City Council to ban the use of second generation anticoagulant rodenticides in city parks. Mountain Lion P-22, which ranges through Griffith Park, was discovered with mange and other health problems last spring, which likely stemmed from rodenticide use inside the park and by homeowners in the hills.

In photos released late last year after the rodenticide was curbed and public awareness raised, P-22 appeared significantly healthier.

For more information on the other great projects CLAW is working on in and around Los Angeles or to purchase your own P-22 Citizen tee, be sure to visit their web site.
