State Parks has posted a seasonal restriction on the beach, notifying the public to stay at least 100 feet away from the pup. The Coastal Discovery Center has posted a docent at the entrance to the beach to inform the public. Rangers are on patrol all the time.
Three to five males lurk around the beach, keeping an eye on the situation.
On January 20, there appear to be three females on the beach. Only the one on the far right has a pup thus far.
