Park Ranger Chris Tomkins may have gotten more up close and more personal with the Elephant Seals in Año Nuevo than just about any two legged creature. Chris joins guest host Erik Nelson as he reveals the private lives of these stupendous local denizens — and the best ways you can see them for yourself — all year around. Chris is not only a Ranger at Año Nuevo, he enjoys a not-so-secret life behind the scenes at Kuumbwa Jazz. Is there some strange nexus where the Elephant Seal and the Jazzbo collide? Probably not — but — find out for yourself, as we experience a Close Encounter with the Elephant Seal Whisperer himself, Chris Tomkins!!
