Elephant Seals – Evolution
The State of California maintains 278 state parks, of unique environmental, historical, and educational interest. One of the most interesting and unique, from the biological and environmental perspectives, is Año Nuevo State Reserve, home of the largest rookery for northern elephant seals in the United States.

This program introduces students to the evolutionary history and adaptations of the northern elephant seals of Año Nuevo State Reserve. The highlight of the program is a video conference between students and a park ranger.
