Patrick Robinson, Director, Ano Nuevo Island Reserve


Patrick is the director of the Año Nuevo Island Reserve.  He grew up in Colorado and moved to California to attend UC Santa Cruz.   His research career started as a volunteer at Año Nuevo Island doing sea lion and elephant seal censuses.  He was inspired to continue his education by obtaining a Ph.D. studying the foraging behavior of seals and sea lions using electronic tags such as time-depth recorders and GPS tags.  This research has taken him all over the world, but he is thrilled to return to lead research and outreach activities at the same place he started his own career!  Please visit the websites below to learn more about Patrick and the Año Nuevo Island reserve.
