Bald eagles, one locally extinct, have been reintroduced and are recovering nicely, as are the endangered island fox. Archaeological relicts show that the people of the Chumash Indian tribe lived on the island for more than 10,000 years. Spanish missionaries arrived in the 1700’s, and by 1822 the last of the Chumash left the island for mainland California. Today the island remains uninhabited except for scientists and researchers. The government Channel Islands National Park owns and operates approximately 24% of Santa Cruz Island. The remaining land is managed by a combination of organizations, including The Nature Conservancy, the University of California Natural Reserve System, and the Santa Cruz Island Foundation.
