In late february some seals start having their pups, like the harp seal/saddleback seal which is a species of earless seals native to the northernmost Atlantic Ocean. It´s sientific name – Pagophilus groenlandicus – means “Ice-lover from Greenland”.
All female seals have to come back to land, or in this case pack ice, to give birth. This becomes more and more a problem due to global warming:(
And the fewer the seals, the less polar bears also…:(
