||There is always a great diversity of mammals at Race Rocks.
Four species of marine mammals regularly haul out there, and the harbour seals are year round residents, pupping on the islands in April to June. The elephant seals are also year -round residents. In some years, the river otters also take up residence and have pups on the island.
Other species of marine mammals are transient in the area, with the sea lions staying from August to May.
