Because of its relatively remote location, Channel Islands National Park is an unusual site in that only about one-third of park visitors ever get out to the islands.

The Channel Islands are vital habitat for seabirds, providing essential nesting and feeding grounds for 99% of seabirds in southern California.
Channel Islands National Park and Marine Sanctuary provide habitat for breeding populations of four species of Pinnipeds (fin footed animals) -- the California sea lion, the northern fur seal, the harbor seal and the northern elephant seal

Close to the California mainland, yet worlds apart, the park encompasses five of the eight California Channel Islands (Anacapa, Santa
Cruz, Santa Rosa, San Miguel, and Santa Barbara) and their ocean environment,
preserving and protecting a wealth of natural and cultural resources.

The park bridges two biogeographical provinces and in a remarkably small place, harbors the biologic diversity of nearly 2,500 miles of the North American coast. The Channel Islands are home to over 2,000 plant and animal species, of which 145 are found nowhere else in the world
