Dignified Murres and Playful Sea Lions Find Sanctuary Around Three Arch Rocks Murres, denizens of northern seas, appear un afraid of man. Downy young hatch from point ed eggs that do not roll easily from rock ledges. Powerful swimmers and superb fishermen, Stel ler sea lions dive as deep as 600 feet for food. A grown bull may weigh a ton. Hunters respect his bellowing charge, but say the mere opening of an umbrella may provoke headlong flight. A national wildlife refuge, Three Arch Rocks provide nesting space on their rugged cliffs for some 300,000 murres, puffins, and cormorants. 717 HS EKTACHROME(UPPER LEFT) AND KODACHROMES© N.G.S.
