Happy Earth Day! However you choose to spend it, whether you participate in festivities with your community or pick up litter on a local beach, it’s worthwhile taking a moment to remember the amazing Bay Area creatures that inspire our sense of love and duty to the Earth.
Very few other places have so many iconic, charismatic species as the Bay Area, and I’d venture to guess the sheer density of “wow factor” wildlife contributes to the strong environmental spirit of the region. So with that, here’s our reminder of what we’re fighting to save.
Alison Hawkes was a Bay Nature editor from 2011-2017. Before Bay Nature she worked in journalism for more than a decade as a former newspaper reporter turned radio producer turned web editor with each rendition bringing her closer to her dream of covering environmental issues. She co-founded Way Out West, a site dedicated to covering Bay Area environmental news.
