Face masks are required in all City of Los Angeles facilities, including libraries.
After a summer of exploring, observing, and connecting with wildlife in the city of Los Angeles, a global biodiversity hotspot, the first L.A. BioBlitz Challenge concluded with outstanding results. Thank you to all the volunteers citywide who participated and supported this tremendous success.
What is the difference between an “observation cold spot” and a “biodiversity cold spot”? It is easy to confuse the terms, but they are two very different scientific issues.
A “biodiversity cold spot” is an area with a limited variety of living things, like plants, animals, fungi, and bacteria.
Biodiversity is short for biological diversity. The term refers to the variety of living things on Earth, and their interactions with each other and their environments—this is extremely important to humans.
