The Little Seal by Ram Papish


The Little Seal by Ram Papish

The northern fur seal spends most of its life in the open ocean of the North Pacific, from California up through Alaska and down to Japan. These seals travel hundreds of miles, farther than any other seal or sea lion, to reach their remote breeding grounds. Most fur seals go to the Pribilof Islands of Alaska, where, historically, several million fur seals converged annually. In 2008, the population counted in the Pribilofs was less than one million and dropping rapidly. Ram Papish's richly illustrated story follows these magnificent - and increasingly vulnerable - creatures through the most important part of their lives.
