Endangered diversity

At dawn and dusk, visitors will be able to see a great deal of wildlife. Point Reyes National Seashore is home to hundreds of species of animals, including the ubiquitous coyote. You may be lucky enough to spot bobcats as they hunt for rodents along the hillsides. Because of the park's variety of habitats, the diversity of creatures living here is astonishing, including 38 threatened and endangered species.
