Since 1968 Point Blue Conservation Science and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service have partnered together to address one of the most important conservation projects in California. The Farallon Islands National Wildlife Refuge is one of our nation’s treasures, with significant populations of nesting seabirds, marine mammals, and native salamanders, insects and plants. We’re proud and honored to be protecting and conserving the largest seabird colony south of Alaska with over 350,000 breeding seabirds, as well as more than 5,000 seals and sea lions.

We’re working to understand and predict the effects of a changing climate and other environmental conditions on island wildlife and initiate effective conservation and management actions. We document population dynamics, diet composition, and reproductive success of 13 seabird species, 5 seal and sea lion species, and white sharks.

You can keep up to date on our island activities by reading and subscribing to the dedicated blog maintained by the staff who live there year-round: Los Farallones blog.
