Conserving Wildlife and Habitats in a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve
The Golden Gate National Parks are notably rich in biological diversity due to the broad spectrum of habitats and unique geology within the parks.
Nearly 53 species of mammals, 250 species of birds, 20 species of reptiles, and 11 species of amphibians call the Golden Gate National Parks their home during some part of the year.
The Golden Gate National Parks are also host to an extensively diverse array of plant species. Almost one third of California’s plant species are found inside of park boundaries.
