Elephant Seal guided walk at Ano Nuevo State Park

Sunday, February 28 at 11:30am

 


 

 

Due to state regulations, there will be only 20 lucky people to enjoy this guided walk.

 

Ano Nuevo State Park is one of the largest mainland breeding colonies in the world for the northern elephant seal. A Natural Preserve has been established to protect elephant seals along with many other animals such as otters, California sea lions, coyotes, cormorants, terns and more.

 

During the breeding season from December 15 to March 31, daily access to the Natural Preserve is available only via guided walks. This is the time when male elephant seals battle on the beaches for the right to mate and the females give birth to their pups on the dunes. Most of the adult seals are gone by early March, leaving behind the weaned pups.
