When a seal or sea lion makes its way to one of our beaches, Seal Sitters is one of the first to be called. With pupping season in full swing, rookeries and pups have already started visiting Seattle beaches.

Seal Sitters relies on volunteers to keep watch on the pups throughout the season. If you’d like to become a Seal Sitter, the organization is hosting a new volunteer training session this Saturday, August 27 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at the Discovery Park Visitor Center. Seal Sitters’ Robin Lindsey says that September and October are the busiest time for the organization, so new volunteers are always needed.
