Ano Nuevo Island Elephant Seals

Number 81

Ano Nuevo Island

One of the best winter walks you could make is a
winter trip to Año Nuevo State Reserve.

Treat yourself and your kids
to a wildlife drama that attracts visitors from all over the world—a
close-up look at the largest mainland population of elephant seals.

From December through April, a colony of the huge creatures visits
Año Nuevo island and point in order to breed and bear young. To
protect the elephant seals (and the humans who hike out to see them),
the reserve is open only through naturalist-guided tours during these months.
