Johanna Turner is a patient person. Hiking miles into the wilderness periodically to maintain camera gear that may never capture a single image of wildlife requires patience.

They discussed the pursuit of camera trapping, its challenges, and rewards.     Links: Cougar Magic: youtube.com/user/CougarMagic facebook.com/Cougarmagic cougarmagic.com AP Video Feature: https://youtu.be/XSEsylM7jwU Save LA Cougars (Liberty Canyon Overpass): http://www.nwf.org/Save-LA-Cougars.aspx G2 Gallery in Venice (some of her work is on display): http://www.theg2gallery.com OC Trackers octrackers.com Earth Skills (Malibu) earthskills.com   Videos: Triple Bear Cubs: https://youtu.be/DVJ_ybMMWrc Bear Cub Wrestlemania 2: https://youtu.be/tmRC4PD4obg Mountain Lion Mating Pair: https://youtu.be/gQLdsXYXGHE Two Friends Stop By: https://youtu.be/penZEJb1ytA     Call us and leave a message (up to 3 minutes): 1-818-925-0106
