Central California has shown me many amazing conservation success stories. The preservation of Yosemite and the Sequoias and the growth of California Condor and marine mammals populations exemplify how humans can come together to accomplish something beyond themselves. It has given me hope and promise that we can conserve nature. The rest of the world needs to emulate the attitude and methods that California has if we want to continue to enjoy the amazing biodiversity that the world has to offer.
