  2. Since time immemorial, countless numbers of elephant seals could be found breeding, molting, and rearing their pups on the western seashores of North America. Unfortunately, American whalers hunted them to near-extinction in the late 19th century. The recent resurgence of the elephant seal population at Point Reyes National Seashore and in the greater Pacific Ocean demonstrates the success of marine conservation laws and threatened species protections.

  3. Phytophthora Ramorum is the brown water mold of foreign origins which causes the disease known as Sudden Oak Death. This disease, which is killing Tanoak trees at an alarming rate, was first documented in Marin County in the mid-1990s and has since spread up and down the North American west coast. Without proper prevention measures in place this disease threatens to make extinct North America's population of Tanoaks within our lifetime.

  4. Vast herds of tule elk roamed California’s central valley and coastal plains until the late 19th century when they were hunted to near-extinction by European settlers. The dramatic rebound of the tule elk population in California and at Point Reyes National Seashore in particular demonstrates the success of threatened species protections and conservation laws.
