Franciscan Manzanita Relocated, CalTrans Videographers Document
After the amazing discovery of the Franciscan manzanita in the Presidio, the Wild Equity Institute filed a petition under the Endangered Species Act to ensure that the long-term recovery planning process for the species was conducted using the best recovery tools available.
As part of the short-term plans to protect the individual plant, biologists from several agencies determined the plant should be moved to a more secure site within the Presidio. This video documents some of the work done on the project.
Now that the move is complete, long-term recovery planing for the species—in addition to the work to save this individual plant—will now move forward.
