SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT THIS VIDEO:
Footage was filmed in Point Reyes National Seashore under NMFS Permit # 21425. We were fortunate enough to get up close to the amazing elephant seals featured in this video because we were escorted by a trained biologist who knows how to behave around the seals and knows how to watch the seals' behaviors to ensure the safety of people and seals.
We recommend that people stay at least 25 ft from seals and if an animal reacts to your presence then you are too close and should move further away.
