baja -lighter for website2
TerraMar directors Robin Lindsey, Janette Wilson (our technical and communitcations specialists), and Toni Frohoff went with the always wonderful Baja Expeditions to help Toni and her co-author, Brenda Peterson, prepare for an exciting new project. Watching the gray whales in their birthing and mating lagoons in Mexico was a privilege; when the whales came close to solicit friendly contact, everyone was in complete awe. These trusting, gentle giants inspire us to be more deserving of the trust they give us.

On the return trip our plane happened to stop in San Diego, CA, where we had to visit the harbor seals at Casa Beach in La Jolla. After all, it was pup season and this cove provides one of the easiest and safest viewing opportunities for watching a seal rookery in the nation. We also happen to all be volunteers for “Seal Sitters” in Seattle. Visit
Seal Sitters' website for information on how we pup-sit, keeping an eye on seal pups on the shore and letting them rest undisturbed while seal moms forage in the sea for food.

This LaJolla cove is a uniquely precious area for these seals, who have fewer options than ever to rest, sunbathe, and nurse their pups on land. However, the rookery is in danger of being demolished.
