The Jersey Shore is a seasonal home to several species of seals or pinnipeds during the late fall, winter, and early spring; sometimes even year-round as every so often a juvenile seal might be spotted during the summer. Seals are protected pursuant to the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972, meaning that it is illegal to harm or harass them.

Since 2006, over 5.7 million bats have died from White Nose Syndrome, a devastating disease that destroys their wing tissue. Despite many inaccurate myths about bats, they are important providers of ecological services, particularly as insect pest managers. Please help us monitor bat populations in New Jersey by letting us know if you have an active bat colony on your property!
