Ormond Beach is uniquely located at the urban/agricultural/wetland interface of Ventura County. It is part of a Globally Important Bird Area, has been designated WSP critical habitat by the USFWS and an Environmentally Sensitive Habitat Area (ESHA) by the Local Coastal Plan of Oxnard. It is one of a few locations in California where 31 special status species survive and where the threatened Western Snowy Plover and the Endangered California Least Tern successfully breed and winter. Ventura Audubon Society has been collecting population data on these species for over 20 years, has had 17 years of species monitoring, 12 years of protective fencing , and over 5 years of an Integrated recovery program involving Volunteers and landowners. The beauty of Ormond Beach is that it remains a part of one of the last intact wetland areas in the state of California, a refuge for thousands of migrants and an coastal oasis where locals can share their community with the wildlife that call it home.
Even as a busy public beach, Hollywood Beach near Oxnard has provided nesting habitat for California least terns and western snowy plovers. It is a testament to resilience to see these tiny birds continue to attempt to carry on their species by enduring all-day interruptions to courtship, incubating eggs, and brooding newly hatched chicks. Our efforts on this beach focuses on public education and recruiting dog rangers. Hollywood Beach is a true testament to a species survival in a ever changing environment along to coast.
