elephant seals

Here are pictures from the elephant seal breading grounds on the Pacific coast south of San Fransisco. To some it up, elephant seals were once very, very endangered, and on the verge of extinction. A few years back, however, a couple of them suddenly started using a nature preserve on the California coast to breed, and have been doing very well there. In order to walk along the beach during the 6 month plus breeding season, you need to get tickets for a ranger guided tour. One of the guys at work had gotten tickets 4 months ago, and had extras, so he took me along with him. It was pretty interesting. I'll write more about this some other time hopefully.
