Team with our staff and trained volunteers to collect and analyze information on habitats and species, protecting our awesome natural heritage. By counting endangered species, monitoring the survival of plants, and gathering other data, we better guide management decisions and volunteer projects.
Applying these discoveries and lessons, the Park Conservancy strengthens the role that science plays in the management of our precious coastline and beyond.
We are major advocates of environmental sustainability, and we practice that core value throughout our Golden Gate National Parks.
There are 35 endangered, rare, and threatened species in the Golden Gate National Parks. That’s more federally protected species than any other national park unit in the continental United States—more than Yosemite, Yellowstone, Sequoia, and Kings Canyon National Parks combined.
