Conservation Talk: Ecology and Conservation of the Gulf of the Farallones

July 1, 2017
11:00 am

AUDUBON CANYON RANCH Martin Griffin Preserve Peter Pyle has worked as an ornithologist and marine biologist throughout the Pacific. During the 1980-2000's much of his research was conducted on birds and white sharks at the Farallon Islands, California and he is now an identification specialist and consultant for the Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary's Beach Watch program. The Gulf of the Farallones lies within an "Eastern Boundary Current System," one of five such current systems around the world, where cold ocean currents and other environmental factors lead to high ocean productivity; an estimated 85-95% of the world's seafood originates from these five systems. Peter's talk will cover the ecology and conservation of the Gulf's marine vertebrates, from birds to pinnipeds, to whales to sharks. We will not only learn about some of the Gulf's keystone species, but will look in on the excellent research that has been undertaken in the Gulf and the conservation and management actions that have resulted.
