West Seattle wildlife: Seal pup’s rest stop

Thanks to Alki photographer Pete R. for sharing photos of a baby harbor seal resting on a float off shore. As we have mentioned here recently, West Seattle-based Seal Sitters say seal-pup season is now in full swing, and ask everyone to be extra careful when these babies turn up – onshore or offshore – taking a break while their moms go off in search of food. Seal Sitters are tracking some of the visitors on their website (read the stories here); that’s also where you can find out what to do if you happen onto a seal that no one’s guarding yet!

    Seal Sitters is a good idea. It must be a hard thing for a seal to try to find a safe spot on our populated shores.

Sorry, comment time is over.
