in a desperate call to action, the caretakers of the Gaviota Coast share with you the spirit of their land in the hope of saving it before it is lost forever.


The Film

Gaviota: The End of Southern California explores one of the most threatened biodiversity hotspots in the world. Filmed over the course of five years in all four seasons, this film leads the audience from the ocean floor of the Santa Barbara Channel to the peaks of the jagged Santa Ynez Mountains and documents the wildlife that thrives in this place, despite encroaching development.


The Gaviota Coast

Traveling from San Diego to Santa Barbara, it would appear that our natural heritage has disappeared forever. By some miracle the urban expanse halts a mere twenty miles from Point Conception, the northern geographic border of Southern California. These twenty miles are known as the Gaviota Coast, the longest stretch of undeveloped coastline in Southern California.
