The South Bay Salt ponds dominate the landscape of the southern end of the San Francisco Bay. Once an industrial resource for salt production, the Salt Ponds are also a home to various species of wildlife, and an excursion for Bay Area residents who are looking to enjoy the vast expanses. The South Bay Salt Ponds offer resources common to people and wildlife alike. Furthermore, they also offer protection from floods and other hazards related to climate change.
