Description

The harp seal is one of nature's most appealing and defenceless creatures, so the worldwide outrage at the annual hunt for the pelts of the baby harp seals was not surprising. This hunt ended only recently and now each spring hundreds of nature lovers flock to see the newborn pups. In this book, Fred Bruemmer follows the life of one female harp seal from her mating dance, through migration to the birth of her pup in sub-zero temperature. He describes the pups' early days until they begin their long, often solitary, 4000 mile migration to the fjords of south-west Greenland. Accompanying the text which includes details of the natural history of the harp seal, are more than 120 of the author's photographs of the seals and other animals found in arctic waters.show more
