Within the ocean swells, beyond the Golden Gate, is an underwater world of astoundingly rich and diverse marine life. Few regions on earth host the multitude of marine species found in the sanctuary's open waters an estuaries, within its sea floor, and along its rocky shores and sandy beaches.

The 1,255 square mile Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary protects the region's extraordinary resources. Past human impacts such as seal and whale hunting, egg harvesting, oil spills, and gill netting nearly exterminated Common Murres, Tufted Puffins, whales, fur seals, and elephant seals. Today the sanctuary works diligently to balance the needs of the San Francisco Bay Area's nearly 8 million people with those of its wildlife resources.
