SeSeal Pupals/Sea Lions on the Beach
Do not disturb seals and sea lions - it's the law!

Harbor seals utilize shoreline locations as resting places (haul-outs) for several hours every day to regulate body temperature, interact with other seals and sleep. Seal pups are born in the spring and summer and need time ashore.
