A coyote peers warily through leafy cover near Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park. Over 95% of the park’s 922,000 acres is designated wilderness. Olympic is known for its biological diversity. Isolated for eons by ice or water, the peninsula is home to endemic species—eight plants and 15 animals—that are found nowhere else on Earth.
