The Silicon Valley is home to many different types of ecosystems: Chaparral, Forest, Littoral, Lotic, Riparian, and Urban zones.  There is such a vast diversity of life existing in such a small proximity. Travel in any direction: North, East, South, or West and hit a different ecosystem with varying species of plants and animals. Or simply keep a keen eye and ear for the diversity of nature in your immediate area. Every one of the living organisms we encounter has had to adapt quickly to their ever encroaching concrete environment. As our species progresses others are forced to regress. Our intelligence gives us the ultimate edge and the ultimate responsibility to appreciate and protect the wonders of our environment.
