Look at this amazing diversity!Did you know that we are living in a global biodiversity hotspot? The Coachella Valley is part of both the California Floristic Province and the Sonoran-Baja Desert Ecoregion, sits on the border between the Colorado and Mojave Deserts, and spans five different life zones, from low desert sandy washes to sub-alpine pine forests.

This 3D map of the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument spans from sea level La Quinta in the lower left to the peak of Mount San Jacinto at 10,833 feet in elevation in the upper right, and displays more than 50,000 observations of life - about 2,000 different plants and animals. Blue dots represents vertebrate animals (birds, mammals, and reptiles), red dots represent invertebrates (insects and spiders), and green dots represent plants.

The entire Coachella Valley is home to at least 3,000 different species that we know of! You can discover the diversity of life in the Coachella Valley and contribute to this map at
