When & Where
Farallon National Wildlife Refuge and San Francisco Bay Wildlife Society
Established as a “native breeding ground for birds,” Farallon National Wildlife Refuge lives up to this decree. Half the world’s population of Ashy storm-petrels breed here and more than 400 other species of breeding and migrant birds have been tallied at this refuge. Positioned 28 miles west of the San Francisco Bay, the Farallon NWR is a complex island ecosystem rich with marine wildlife. Six species of marine mammals breed or haul-out onto these rocky islands, and its surrounding waters host one of the highest concentrations of white sharks in the world. Farallon NWR is part of the San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge Complex and is administered by the US Fish & Wildlife Service.
The San Francisco Bay Wildlife Society is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) cooperating association, authorized by Congress to support the education, interpretation, and research activities of the US Fish and Wildlife Service. The primary missioni of the San Francisco Bay Wildlife Society is to promote pubic awareness and appreciation of the San Francisco Bay and its natural history, and to conserve and preserve the remaining bay lands as essential wildlife habitat.
