Pre-1850s, 2 million acres of the California coast was covered in old-growth redwood forests. As settlers moved West in their conquest for gold and land, the logging industry boomed. In 1918, Save-the-Redwoods League was founded to prevent the clear cutting of these ancient giants; due to their efforts, three state parks were designated to protect the trees. On October 2, 1968, after over 90% of the original forests had been destroyed, Redwood National Park was established by President Lindon Johnson. In 1994, the National Park Service and California Department of Parks and Recreation combined their efforts to manage these lands, for the preservation of some of the oldest and largest trees known to man, as well as the ecosystem within the Redwood National and State Parks, which protects threatened animal species such as the Northern Spotted Owl, Brown Pelican, Tidewater Goby, Chinook Salmon, and Steller's Sea Lion.
