On view are 47 photographs by Tupper Ansel Blake: close-ups of elephant and harbor seals, tufted puffin, brown pelican, and cormorant, as well as views of lichen and anemones in deep recesses of sea caves. His photographs document the recovery of most of the indigenous species after the rocky California islets became a National Wildlife Refuge.
