A SEAL MECCA
Ano Nuevo, one of the most well known viewing areas to see the Elephant Seals, is located just north of Santa Cruz, California. The park offers an extraordinary wilderness experience, where every year up to 10,000 elephant seals return to breed, give birth and molt their skin amongst the scenic dunes and beaches. The terrain of Ano Nuevo is distinctive with coastal terrace prairie, wetland marshes, dune fields and coastal scrub hosting a high diversity of plants and animals, including the rare and endangered San Francisco Garter Snake and the California Red-legged Frog.
