Reading Room: Photographs: Drakes Estero Wildlife Monitoring Cameras - Upper Estero Far - April 2008

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 April 2008. The camera was programmed to capture images every minute from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. There may be gaps in the sequence of images when regular camera maintenance occurred and when there were camera malfunctions, dead batteries, full memory cards, etc.

Please note that the 12:00 p.m. to 12:59 p.m. images are included in the AM directories. If these were included in the PM directories, they would be listed last, instead of before the 1:00 p.m. image.

Click on a hyperlinked date below to open up the desired directory. Images are each ~300 KB in size.

The rich, lush environment of Point Reyes heavily depends on the fog. During rainless summers, fog can account for 1/3 of the ecosystem's water input.
