San Diego County is a biodiversity hot spot. The unique Mediterranean climate and landscape create an environment where diverse species thrive.

Michael Wall, vice president of science and conservation at The Nat, will discuss those threats in a Nat Talk on the state of the region's biodiversity Tuesday night.
