In an effort to educate visitors to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area about the 33 endangered species that inhabit it, Bay Area conservationists and local residents gathered Jan. 9 for the 2010 Endangered Species Big Year.

The event kicks off a 12-month program, which encourages people to be proactive when it comes to participating in conservation that will prevent species from going extinct. Two of the most recognized animals are the California red-legged frog and its main predator — the San Francisco garter snake.
