Piedras Blancas is a State Marine Reserve and Conservation Area on the central California coast, and a rookery of the Northern Elephant Seal as well. For a few months every year, some 17,000 individuals breed, birth, molt, and rest there. Flocks of California Brown Pelicans seem to endlessly patrol the coast. The central California coast is highly protected, and the abundance of life is a testament to the open space and the healthy food chain. The incredible array of life for which the Earth is made is evident here.
