November is the start of the elephant seal breeding season in Point Reyes. The seals recolonized Point Reyes in the 1980s and has grown over the past 40 years after being extirpated over 100 years ago. The seal population has grown in number and spatially from a remote beach at the headlands to a recreational beach at Drakes Bay. Learn how seals respond to winter storms, rising seas and coastal habitat changes. A coastal restoration project at Drakes Beach may benefit seals as sea levels rise.
