“Treasured by the wildlife scientific community as one of the 15 most biologically diverse and ecologically significant regions in the world, Gaviota is home to more than 195 distinct species of birds, 60 species of fish, and 1,400 plant and animal species — including threatened and endangered critters like the steelhead trout, the tidewater goby, the white-tailed kite, the red-legged frog — that have uneasily coexisted with human interlopers for hundreds of years.” Santa Barbara Independent Cover story by Ethan Stewart 4.20.06
