With seals as the major prey for great white sharks, as the seal population increases, so has the number for great white sharks.

Confirmed reports this summer have shown that there have been sharks feeding on seals close to shore and sightings near swimming beaches.

Seashore officials are asking the public to not swim near seals, do not swim alone, and call 911 in case of any emergency.

Shark advisory signs for beaches have been posted and educational materials and safety tips for beach users is available at nps.gov.
