this amazing video of a mountain lion mother and her cubs inside their den is giving new hope for the species' survival in sonoma county. the video was taken by researchers trying to teach bay area residents how to live safely with lions in their theie midst. abc 7 news is the first to share these rare images with the public. abc 7 news anchor eric thomas
6:43 am
has more. >> reporter: these mountain lion kittens are 11 days old. snuggled in a cave in the glen allen kenwood area. their mother is wearing a gps collar to track her movements. researchers have been following her for two years through three litters of kittens and the lead scientist hid a video camera inside her den. quinton martins is an expert lion tracker. he waited until the gps showed she was off hunting, then went looking for the lion caves. >> crawling under roots and trees and finally i found the cave with the two little kittens in it. it was just amazing. >> reporter: quinton runs living with lions for audubon canyon ranch. so far, they have put gps collars on nine mountain lions, tracking them as they share their native habitat with humans. they had a major set back last
6:44 am
fall when thousands of dollars of equipment were burned. private donations got them back in action and all the lions survived the fire, but the animals still face serious threats often from people trying to protect livestock. if a mountain lion kills livestock or a pet, california law allows the owner to get a deprivation permit to have the lion killed. remember the mother we showed you earlier, no kittens from her two past litters are still alive. three cubs died from natural causes, two others made it to young adulthood but were killed after they killed livestock. quinton and his team are hoping to stop that psychel with the new litter. the way to save lions is to protect livestock. >> they need to be locked in a predator proof enclosure at night. >> reporter: quinton says most problems are from hobby farms with just a few animals and no protection from lions. he showed us this property which actually has a small barn but the owners still let their goats
6:45 am
outside at night and he came back the next night but gave up quickly because now the goats are safely inside. >> if they're out at night it's not a question of if but when. >> reporter: the living with lions project is partnering with sonoma county wildlife rescue which has a barn yard and fencing set up to take predator proofing methods. experts say killing them does not protect the animals. >> if you kill one mountain lion another one is going to fill that niche. >> reporter: this map shows one male lion's territory covering 17,000 separate private properties. killing that lion would upset the delicate balance of the ecosystem over a wide area. so the lion team is challenging the community to help this new litter survive. they're lucky to have a dedicated mother. >> to see how patient she is, you know, people could learn a lot from mountain lions. >> reporter: and check out these new photos of the cubs now 4
6:46 am
weeks old and cuter than ever. eric thomas, abc 7 news. >> while the hidden camera rolled that patient mother stayed with her babies for 28 hours straight before she finally went out to take care of her own needs. we have more video and links to the living with lions project at now, your accuweather forecast with drew tuma. >> accuweather this morning we are tracking that morning marine layer we have fog in spots and then in some spots it is reducing visibility. so we switch live doppler 7 over to visibility, and you see visibility in miles. where you see one, two or three, that is limited visibility. we see that right along the coast at this hour and in the north bay. elsewhere you see ten, like sfo and concord, that's good visibility at this hour. we have fog early on. and the picture is a beautiful one. live look, this is sutro tower. the sun is up. you see the fog over san francisco and you also notice a
