Images from Channel Islands National Park.

February 14 - 22, 2004

Comprising five of eight islands off the coast of California near Los Angeles, Channel Islands National Park is close to civilization but remote enough to have remained mostly undeveloped. There are 2000 species of plants and animals, yet only 4 species of mammals native to the islands. The photo on the left is Santa Cruz Island, and the right photo is Scott's painting subject; Anacapa Island. Seventy-six percent of Santa Cruz Island is owned by The Nature Conservancy, a not for profit group that buys up threatened habitats to save for future generations. In it's annual survey of the largest charities, Forbes calculated The Nature Conservancy's fundraising efficiency at 91% which is among the highest ratings for charities.
