Charging sea lions at La Jolla Cove spark cohabitation debate… again

In the latest incident of humans vs. nature, beachgoers in La Jolla, California, were chased by a few large sea lions at the Cove in a video that's making the internet rounds and once again raising concerns about cohabitating beaches.

It's not an unusual sight as the shores typically filled with sunbathing sea lions become overwhelmed with crowds for the summer but in the latest incident caught on video by Instagram user @whoisjaphet, two large sea lions bark and charge at the crowd -- on emerging from the sea like a torpedo -- sending beachgoers scattering and screaming.

Before the sea lions react, a San Diego lifeguard can be heard over a loudspeaker.

“Everybody, let's please give that large, male sea lion plenty of room,” the voice can be heard saying. “They have bitten people, and they are protected animals.”

The comments on the viral video aren't anything new perspectives to anyone who has lived in San Diego for at least a few summers:

La Jolla Cove, where the incident took place, is open to beachgoers throughout the year and is popular for snorkelers and scuba divers. Despite calls for its closure, the city does not have any plans to limit access to this particular shore.

Two nearby areas called Point La Jolla and Boomer's Beach, which are now closed a few months a year for pupping season, may soon be closed year-round to beachgoers; The city of San Diego has applied for a permit with the California Coastal Commission to make that a reality.

"Members of the public have been observed trying to touch, take selfies, and get as close to sea lions as possible which is a dangerous situation for both the public and the animals," the city says in a statement on its website.

California sea lions are a protected species and it is illegal to harass them, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The agency says you can tell if you're too close if the animal starts to stare, fidget or flee.

"Even if you don't see these reactions, we recommend you keep yourself and your pets at least 100 yards (the length of a football field) from seals and sea lions to make sure you're not disrupting important behavior, such as resting, feeding, nursing, or breeding."

Male sea lions can grow up to 1,000 pounds, especially during breeding season and, while it's not common, it is possible for these marine mammals to harm people, especially if they feel threatened.

"People should be cautious and keep their space at a reasonable distance," SeaWorld said in response to a similar incident last year. "Although sea lions may get close to visitors along the beach it's always recommended that we/the public do not get close and interrupt their behavior."

San Diego City Council votes to close Point La Jolla year-round to protect wildlife

San Diego City Council voted unanimously on Monday afternoon to close Point La Jolla year-round. The closure is intended to protect both wildlife and the hundreds of people who visit the sea-lion pupping area.

Point La Jolla is one of the most iconic spots in San Diego, not just because of the beautiful view but also the sea lions.

Even during the vote, the area had already been closed off due to the pupping season.

At the beginning of the year, the City Council put in a permit-change request to expand the closure of Boomer Beach and Point La Jolla from May 1 to Oct. 31, according to staffers at Councilmember Joe LaCava's office.

The California Coastal Commission voted earlier this month to recommend closing the area all year. One of the commission's responsibilities is to make public beaches and the California coastline accessible to all.

This extension means visitors will continue to have limited access to the area between the Children's Pool and La Jolla Cove. Additional signage will be posted, and park rangers will monitor the site. The steps to Boomer Beach will be permanently closed.

City Council will hear the action again in at least two weeks. Then it will go into effect at least 30 days after Mayor Todd Gloria signs it, according to a spokesperson for Councilmember LaCava.

The year-round ordinance will likely take effect at the beginning of November.

Monday's action by city council gives the city the ability to enforce the coastal permit approved by the Coastal Commission earlier on Sept. 7, the spokesperson said.

Why do some want to close Point La Jolla year-round?

When the area was closed during last year's pupping season, there were no reports of negative interactions between people and wildlife, according to the Coastal Commission.

But once it reopened, there was an uptick in incidents, some of which went viral in the last few months.

In June, a snorkeler was recorded petting a sleeping baby sea lion despite lifeguard orders.

A few months before that, in March, a girl threw something at a sunbathing sea lion.

Harassing sea lions is a federal offense, NBC 7's Ramon Galindo reports.

Locals respond to the possible permanent closure of Point La Jolla

Cristina Schaffer has lived in La Jolla for 20 years. She swims out in the cove every Sunday with her group of friends.

After seeing one of the viral videos, she hopes that a year-round closure means no more incidents at Point La Jolla.

"I don't think the state has enough money to have a full-time ranger here, explaining how to respect the animals to people who really think they can pet every little baby sea lion that they see," she said. "I think it's just [the city's] way of trying to find a balance."

Sergiy Trydid moved to San Diego near La Jolla about four years ago. He has sentimental ties to Point La Jolla and hopes the city can keep the area accessible while finding another way to stop people from disturbing the wildlife.

"Ironically, this is actually the place, the exact point, where we were deciding whether we can and should move to San Diego at all," Trydid shared with NBC 7.

Iconic San Diego Spot to See Sea Lions Now Closed to Public — Here's Why

A popular beach and location to see sea lions up close along California’s coast will now be closed to the public.

A popular beach and location to see sea lions up close along California’s coast will now be closed to the public. San Diego’s famed Point La Jolla and Boomer Beach have been a viewing spot of the natural wildlife along the ocean for decades, and will now be closed to the public as a new measure passed unanimously by the San Diego City Council during a public hearing on Sept. 18, according to meeting minutes reviewed by Travel + Leisure. Point La Jolla is located approximately 15 miles north of downtown San Diego, along the Pacific Ocean. La Jolla's tourism website describes Boomer Beech as a "hidden beach" with "great waves" popular with body surfers.

However, as tourists have flocked to the area for sea lion selfies, residents and officials alike have grown increasingly worried about the safety of visitors and the animals. In fact, this summer, CBS News shared video of sea lions charging at tourists in the area.

Many residents applaud the decision, with people and environmental experts sending in public comments to the City Council in advance of the meeting.

“The year-round closure of the rocky outcropping at Pt. La Jolla protects pups left on the rookery while mothers forage. Pups nurse up to 11 months. They are defenseless when their mothers leave to forage and have been seen subjected to endless harassment lowering their chance of survival,” shared Pacific Marine Mammal Center’s Kristen Donald of Laguna Beach, CA in a public comment.

Donald also notes that the public can still get a glimpse of the sea lions from a safe distance on the nearby boardwalk.

However, not everyone was pleased that Point La Jolla will be closed. One resident of Ramona, CA shared in the public comments that this was a “hostile take-over of a public beach by a single-interest group” and is “misguided and should be rejected”.

California city closes popular beach for sea lions

The San Diego City Council is closing parts of tourist laden La Jolla to people to protect sea lions. FOX 5 Jaime Chambers hit the beach and spoke to City Councilman Joe LaCava and Carol Toye of the Seal Society.

LA JOLLA, Calif – San Diego's city council has voted unanimously to shut down access to Point La Jolla and Boomer Beach after complaints from residents and activists with regard to sea lions.

"People will be prevented from actually going on to the rocks at Point La Jolla and for Boomer’s Beach if your purpose is to actually get into the water for swimming, for paddleboarding … you’re still going to be allowed to get into the water," Joe LaCava, the city council member representing La Jolla, told FOX 5 San Diego.

The area is well known for its sea lion population, which chooses the rocks to breed and nurse.

SEA LION WHO WAS FOUND ROAMING A CALIFORNIA FREEWAY RELEASED BACK INTO WILD

The transition from seasonal to year-round closure is a first of its kind that is praised by sea lion activists, while some tourists told the TV station they were not thrilled about the indefinite closures.

Eleven days before the Sept. 18 city council vote, the California Coastal Commission unanimously approved the city’s plan to seal off the rocky area between La Jolla Cove beach and Boomer Beach from the public year-round to keep people and sea lions apart, La Jolla Light reports.

"While tourists may want to take their children for a [close-up] view and a selfie with the wild 800 pound sea lions, the Marine Mammal Protection Act recommends viewing from 50 feet," a spokesperson with the Sierra Club Seal Society wrote to FOX 5. "Any disturbance of a sea lion defined as changing their behavior including looking at you or moving away or growling is subject to a fine."

In July, a video shared by Instagram user @whoisjaphet showed two sea lions taking over the beach amid summer crowds at rocky La Jolla Cove. Beachgoers made a run for it after the sea lions seemingly charged at people on the shore.

VIDEO: SEA LION CHARGES TOWARD BEACHGOERS AT SAN DIEGO COVE

"Please give that large, male sea lion plenty of room," a lifeguard can be heard saying over a loudspeaker in the video. "They have bitten people, and they are protected animals."

There are no plans to close La Jolla Cove beach to divers, swimmers, surfers and beachgoers due to its "critical part of the [recreation] for folks who live in the area, for visitors in the area," LaCava told FOX 5.

The restrictions will be in place for seven years, when the city will need to apply for another amendment or a new coastal development permit, according to La Jolla Light.
