New harbor seal float is in place

The new float arrived in June 2016, and the old wooden dock was removed the following month. By late December, more seals were using the new float than had ever been seen at the old dock. On January 5, 2017, the float was packed to capacity with 70 seals. The new float is 300 feet from the shoreline. Perhaps the greater sense of security has made this structure a more attractive resting area. It is the only known structure in the world built specifically for harbor seals.
