Newborn Harbor Seals Spotted at Casa Beach!
The first pups of the season have been born at Casa Beach. In January there was one live birth. The pup bonded successfully. In February there have been two more births so far. February and March will be filled with action as the bulk of the births will take place during these months (an estimated total of 40-50 new seals will be born this season).
This is the best time of the year to stop by the beach and try to catch a live birth or witness newborn pups bonding with their mothers for the first time. Please remember, there is no beach access allowed during harbor seal pupping season (December 15 to May 15) in order to protect the moms and pups when they are most vulnerable. You can watch the pregnant seals and their newborn pups from the mid-landing behind the chain, from the sidewalk above Casa Beach, or from the sea wall, if open.
