Farallon Patrol Log

The faithful PRBO Farallon Patrol volunteer their boats and expertise to keep our island field station supplied. We appreciate all of their contributions. Listed below are the vessels that sailed in summer–fall 1996. Blitzen’s run on 28 September was a special tour for Friends of the Farallones (see photo in Northern Fur Seals Return); nine guests had a first-hand introduction to island wildlife from PRBO biologists, executive director Dan Evans, and board chair Ann Stone. Special thanks to skipper Dick Spight for his hospitality aboard Blitzen.

Note: PRBO members will have the chance to bird on San Francisco Bay with our Farallon Patrol on February 22.
