Biodiversity
Midelevation MeadowGiant sequoias are an integral part of the parks' ecosystem, but they are just one component in the myriad of life at Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. These parks are home to hundreds of different plants and animals, including many threatened and endangered species.

Within park boundaries, elevation ranges from 1500 feet in the Sierra's western foothills to 14,494 feet at Mt. Whitney. The result is an unbroken chain of extraordinarily diverse habitats. This amazing diversity is recognized as a unique world resource and both parks are honored as Biosphere Reserves.
