Wildlife in the Baldwin Hills

Visit the Baldwin Hills Biota Project!

Before the influx of people and urbanization, the Baldwin Hills were teeming with abundant and diverse wildlife. Despite the loss of animals like mountain lions, bears, and antelope, the Baldwin Hills are still characterized by a large population of species that have managed to adapt to their shrinking habitat and the presence of humans. For a large number of the animals that call the Baldwin Hills home, these hills have become one of the last remaining havens of natural habitat in the middle of Los Angeles.
