Protecting Wildlife Habitat

The Bay Area is among the most important biodiversity "hotspots" in the United States, thanks to its varied geology and mild climate. Our area is home to top predators like the mountain lion as well as smaller, threatened and endangered species like the California red-legged frog and the marbled murrelet.

A central goal of POST's work is to create wildlife corridors that allow animals to meet all of their needs. Our stewardship efforts include nurturing the habitat of threatened and endangered plants and animals. We also collaborate with researchers, including the Bay Area Puma Project, looking to ensure wildlife survival in our densely populated region.
