Enjoy amazing photos of organisms and researchers from the Salish Sea region and around the world. We want to continue to update this gallery with new photos of FHL classes, research and marine plants and animals.


The FHL Image Gallery is currently online! Please click here.


The FHL Scientific Photo Gallery (also known as The FHL Image Gallery) was created in 2013 during the last year of the National Science Foundation’s GK12 Program at the University of Washington, the “Ocean and Coastal Interdisciplinary Science (OACIS)” Graduate Program was administered through UW FHL, the Department of Biology and the UW College of the Environment. It will be updated regularly as new images are donated.

The following individuals helped create the gallery, and many others provided photos: Kenneth P. Sebens, Timothy Dwyer, Alan Cairns, Jessica Nordstrom, Max Kessler, Caroline Pew, and Alex Spietz.
