Squid are an important part of elephant seals diet. Squid expert Danna Staaf updates recent squid news on her Squid a Day blog:

"In the three months since my daughter's birth, this is what you've pulled: Humboldt squid stranding. Market squid boomHumboldt squid re-invasion. Giant squid video (finally). Deep-sea squid sex. Giant squid specimen. Flying squid (again)."
I missed some of these stories but enjoyed the Discovery Channel's Giant Squid video. A very dramatic story. 

More squid means more elephant seal food. Seeing so many huge animals lying on the beach certainly attests to plenty of life in those waters!
