More Than 5,000 Acres Protected for Rare Wildflower in Santa Barbara County

LOMPOC, Calif. - The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service today protected 5,755 acres as critical habitat for the Vandenberg monkeyflower, a small, yellow wildflower found only in western Santa Barbara County, Calif. The designation will help ensure the survival of this flower, which was protected under the Endangered Species Act in 2014 under the terms of a settlement agreement with the Center for Biological Diversity.
