It Is Elephant Seal Breeding Season At Point Reyes

The northern elephant seal breeding season is upon us. Two bull elephant seals arrived at Drakes Beach this week – the first bulls of the season! You can see them from the Elephant Seal Overlook. More adult elephant seals will be arriving in the coming weeks. The picture below shows one of the bulls on Drakes Beach (NPS Photo/Kristen Richardson). NMFS Permit No. 17152.
