Seal Beach National Wildlife Refuge, CA

Fish and Wildlife Service

Overview

Seal Beach National Wildlife Refuge is located in southern coastal California and is 30 miles south of Los Angeles. It encompasses 911 acres of remnant saltwater marsh in the Anaheim Bay estuary and serves as a significant stopover and wintering area along the Pacific Flyway for shorebirds. As urban sprawl and population growth result in the loss and degradation of wildlife habitats, the refuge becomes an ever more vital resource to dwindling populations of native plants and animals. The refuge provides essential habitat for three endangered species, including the light-footed clapper rail, the California least tern, and the Belding's savanna sparrow. Currently, access to the refuge is limited. Please call the Seal Beach Visitor Center at 562-598-1024 for more information on current activities.
