Drawing Connections- Cabrillo National Monument

February 08, 2018 Posted by: Alex Warneke
In the Rocky Intertidal Zone at Cabrillo National Monument, one of the most extreme ecosystems on earth, plants and animals are tested every day. From the crashing waves on the shore at high tide to the intense wind and sun when the water recedes, this is an environment characterized by stress. If anything is to survive such a barrage of natural pressures, preparation is essential.

    Thanks for the insight. I’m in the Central Valley of California where we are rapidly losing our native wildlife due to fraught but mostly to the agribusinesses that are draining our water supply, paying substandard wages to their employees who deliver billion dollar crops annually. Our once beautiful valley is virtually a desert. Wells are drying up, sink holes appearing constantly and yet the mega farms continue to foul our valley.
