Grizzly Bears To Control Pt. Reyes Elephant Seal Population

Pt. Reyes National Seashore Reports:
Due to the elephant seal population expansion at Drakes Beach in front of the Ken Patrick Visitor Center, Point Reyes National Seashore begins today an elephant seal control program by re-introducing grizzly bears to their historic range along the coast. By bringing back a natural predator to the elephant seal, we are helping to restore the natural balance. The grizzly bears will be contained to only the Ken Patrick Visitor Center beach area and will only be around during non-visitor hours. Thank you.
