Protected Invertabrates

Rare and endangered invertebrates

Invertebrates can be found in both aquatic and terrestrial habitat throughout the Warm Springs Natural Area. While some species spend their entire lives on land or in water, others begin their lives in the water (as juveniles) and move to land as adults. Species in this category are herbivores, carnivores and omnivores, and although some invertebrates can be quite small, they make up the majority of species found at the Warm Spring Natural Area.
