More than 95 percent of the area's native habitat has been destroyed by cultivation or urban expansion, leaving more endangered bird, mammal and other species in the southern San Joaquin than anywhere in the continental U.S. http://www.sfgate.com/science/article/California-drought-Central-Valley-farmland-on-5342892.php
