Reading Room: Photographs: Drakes Estero Wildlife Monitoring Camera - 2010

Below are descriptions of directories containing the Wildlife Monitoring Camera photographs taken of the Upper Estero Far (UEF) harbor seal haul-out site within Drakes Estero during 2010. The camera was programmed to capture images every minute from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and generally operated during the harbor seal breeding season. There may be gaps when there were camera malfunctions, dead batteries, full memory cards, etc.

The photos in the subsequent directories may not currently be displayed in sequential order. We are working on correcting this issue, so changes may be made in the future.
