San Diego Horned Lizard

San Diego Horned Lizard

San Diego is known for its beautiful beaches, but there is more to this coastal ecosystem than just sand and surf: Other landscapes, such as coastal sage brush and forest habitat, are critical to maintaining the integrity of the ecosystem. A number of threatened species make their home in this ecosystem of coastal sage scrub, including  the San Diego Horned Lizard. As habitat is lost to development, numbers of this lizard continue to decline. Learn more about our efforts to save San Diego's "other side."
