Preserving a Unique Natural Treasure

Seal Pupping Season Has Begun!

SD UT front page small

Casa Beach will be closed during harbor seal pupping season, from December 15, 2014 through May 15, 2015.

During this delicate period, the seals will spend about 50% of their time on the beach to give birth, nurse, raise their pups, rest, re-oxygenate, thermoregulate, and shed their fur.

The Seal Conservancy of San Diego thanks you for all of your support in helping us achieve this critical protection for the La Jolla harbor seal colony.
