532 -"last year we put 46,000 people through here on nature walks just to see the seals, and turned away another 30,000. so people are real eager to see this and they go on formal led walks because the wildlife needs to be protected, and also the people need to be protected from the wildlife (chuckle)."
630 -this is a classic wildlife ecosystem.
757 -everyday, for those months -December through January -we put 20 people on a walk every 15 minutes. And we have volunteer naturalists that are trained and come out, and we focus on school groups and we have a big program on environmental information and education, and why we have parks."
912 -the rookery is increasing exponentially. and animals are going on beaches they've never gone on before. And we don't know what to do about that in the future, looking for experts to figure where the animals will go next. large problems down in central California, down by piedras blancos. and there's no management entity, and people are able to walk through the animals.
