We are continuing our Celebration of World Wetlands Day 2023 by sharing some of our wildlife inspirations from the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve.
The Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve is one of the largest remaining coastal estuaries in California.
35% of the world's wetlands have disappeared since 1970.
Over 97% of our wetlands in Southern California have disappeared or been destroyed.
Southern California wetlands are feeding ground and home to hundreds of species of amazing shorebirds including endangered least terns, threatened snowy plovers, brown pelicans, egrets, herons, cormorants, gulls, ducks and many other shorebirds.
The 1,380-acre Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve includes over 800 species of plants, fish and wildlife. Of the 800 species, 23 are considered special status and rare species including the California least tern, western snowy plover, ridgeway's rail, peregine falcon, green sea turtle, Southern California legless lizard, and the burrowing owl.
Not only are wetlands disappearing, many of them including the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve are adjacent to oil rigs and cars speeding by on the pacific coast highway.
Some of the major threats to these precious birds include fishing gear, oil rigs, unleashed dogs, getting hit bar cars, plastic pollution, drones, pellet guns and now the H1N5 Flu.
If you see a bird that appears to be sick, it is essential that you immediately call OC Animal Control to get help.
