Beach going in Malibu is an adventure. While the endless other beach goers and seas of towels and umbrellas can distract, remember that nature is really why you made the trip. So keep this in mind when you encounter wildlife – remember don’t freak out and for goodness sake don’t touch the animals or try and take pics near them. Seals and Sea Lions sometimes beach themselves to rest. So please let them do that, and don’t bother them. If you see one in distress, alert a lifeguard or park ranger. You can also call The California Wildlife Center to rescue animals here in Malibu. Most importantly, take out what you bring in! DO NOT leave your trash. These beaches are our opportunity to enjoy nature, so let’s respect it. Animals also can get caught up or get sick from our trash. Plus, who wants to go to a dirty beach?
