Global Hot Spots of Biodiversity Map
What is a Biodiversity Hotspot?
As one can see from the map above, the Puente-Chino-Hills Wildlife Corridor is situated in one of these hotspots. This Hot Spot is an area second only to tropical rain forests in both diversity and threat.
"Biodiversity hotspots are regions that are both biologically fertile (rich distribution of plants and animals) and highly threatened. In other words, such biogeographic regions are very productive and are constantly exposed to threats of destruction which warrant the need for them to be protected." Read More
There are now 36 worldwide Biodiversity Hot Spots
And two of the three properties we are trying to save are also in what Los Angeles County calls a "Sensitive Ecological Area." Our Sensitive Ecological Area is number 15.
