Observers of the elephant seal rookery
north of Cambria reported that many pup seals were being swept out to sea by this weekend’s high swells. An estimated 5 percent to 10 percent of pup seals, on average, are swept away by strong waves in January and February. The peak of the southwesterly swells, which reached 17 to 19 feet, occurred Sunday afternoon and will gradually decrease by Wednesday.
