You’ve probably seen the familiar yellow tape and traffic cones on the shore, marking the perimeter around a resting seal or sea lion, with at least As Seal SittersRobin Lindsey mentioned at The Whale Trail‘s orca (and more) talk this past Thursday, the next volunteer-training session is scheduled for March 9th, and you are invited to RSVP ASAP if you are interested. One particular point of interest from Robin:

Unlike most marine mammal stranding networks, Seal Sitters encourages children to participate. It is very empowering for a child to learn about our fragile ecosystem and be able to do something to protect seals and other marine mammals.

The e-mail link for RSVPs is in this announcement on the Seal Sitters’ site, which also includes location/time details.

  3. I love Seal Sitting. Not only do I get to protect these fragile pups, but I get to visit with neighbors and fellow Sitters like Crystal. Win win. And the views are amazing. :)

  4. I also highly recommend seal sitting.
    It has been a great experience for my daughter and I to volunteer with Seal Sitters. They are an incredibly dedicated and knowledgeable organization and being on the beach protecting our local wildlife is truly an honor!

  5. Dear Seal Sitters:

    Please don’t block the entire path or even 1/2 of the path. That combined with a half dozen or so of you standing around makes it impossible to get through on a run. You have blocked the beach with bright tape, you’re impossible to miss. You have accomplished your task and I respect it. Please respect me and allow my dog and I to get through without having to stop and walk because you have blocked a majority of the path. Thanks
