Crybaby Learns To Swim


During a fortunate opportunity as part of a research team studying population ecology of Weddell seals in the Antarctic, Jesse DeVoe and Jessica Farrer were able to record this video of one of the seal pups, recently weaned by its mother and on its own to learn how to survive. A pup must first get in the water to be successful as a seal! Footage was obtained under NMFS Permit No. 1032-1917.
