NEWEST CHEERS!  - Casa Beach Pupping Season Closure in San Diego, CA

On February 24th, 2014, the San Diego City Council voted 6 to 3 in FAVOR of Seal Pupping Season Closure of Casa Beach from December 15 through May 15.

With enforcement of this decision and the support of the California Coastal Commission for continued puping season closures, the harbor seals of Casa Beach in the La Jolla area of San Diego will be spared the intentional harrassment, disturbance, and repeated stress they have suffered for years.
