Images of Island Foxes

Photos of endangered island foxes are few and far between. This island fox in profile from Santa Cruz Island is courtesy of photographer Kevin Schafer.

Video of island foxes is even harder to come by. The following links will take you to video of and about Channel island foxes.

ARKive.org is an international library of images capturing the natural world. This remarkable resource links to Friends of the Island Fox and we are returning the compliment.

The Island Fox has Friends

If you have seen the Island Fox San Miguel Island 2006 Release video, you have heard the original music of David Lynch.

David’s guitar solos add heart and bounce to the video. One of the themes used in the video has currently climbed to #8 of 2,480 on the Neil Young website for original music. You can help David climb even higher in the ranking by placing your vote for the song "Mahatma"at: neilyoung.com

Complete versions of
David Lynch’s music can be found on his CD “Dozen” available through his website.

The video was also edited by island fox friend Michael Lawshe. Michael is nominated for a Golden Reel Award this Saturday, February 23 for his work as Sound Supervisor on Smallville. Check out his blog at Soundzgood.info

The photo at the top, was taken by Peter Pendergest.

Without help from friends like David, Michael and Peter we wouldn’t have a video of the island foxes to show the public or photos to post on our website. Friends of the Island Fox thanks them for their support of island fox conservation and appreciates their efforts to get involved in helping to save the island fox.
