anacapa island cove - channel islands national park

The Channel Islands live cam is located on Anacapa Island; a small volcanic island situated 11 miles off the coast of southern California. Anacapa Island is made up of lava, cinder and volcanic ash rocks, due to volcanic eruptions between 19 million and 15 million years ago.

Although Anacapa is close to one of the world’s largest cities, it feels like a world apart. Viewers of the Channel Islands live camera will observe an island that is scarcely populated and with few developments.

Because Anacapa is isolated from humans and most predators, it is an excellent nesting location for sea-birds and is home to over 60 species of birds. Pelicans, gulls, murrelets and petrels are just a few species of birds that nest on the island.

Channel Islands National Park, off the coast of Southern California, protects the ocean environment and its wealth of natural and cultural resources. Isolation over thousands of years has created unique animals, plants, and archaeological riches found nowhere else on Earth.
