Twenty-seven miles west of San Francisco lies a group of islands that many residents of the city are scarcely aware of. Despite their obscurity, the Farallons make up a hauntingly beautiful wilderness area with an astonishing variety of life on and around the islands. With human habitation dating back only about four hundred years, the rocky islands and sea stacks have a rich natural history-and a vulnerable ecosystem. This program offers a unique look at the Farallon Wilderness, including its geography, geology, marine environment, and wildlife, as well as the potential for human impact and damage to it and the research, legislation, and public involvement that have gone into protecting it.
