Are you interested in joining the Harbor Seal Advisory Committee? This committee, which was formed to learn more about the local harbor seal population and make recommendations to support it, has a vacancy that the City of Carpinteria is looking to fill. Committee members meet periodically to develop an understanding of the local harbor seal population, including causes of recent trends in births and haul-out numbers, and to develop recommendations to the City Council for specific actions to mitigate habitat degradation and seal disturbances.
