The harp seal lives in the north Atlantic and Arctic Oceans, spending long periods of time associated with sea ice. Young pups are solid white. This species is highly migratory, with individuals following Arctic sea ice as it expands and contracts throughout the year.
How Your Adoption Helps Protect Harp Seals: Harpseals are susceptible to the effects of ocean pollution and are influenced by the changing shape of the ice flows of the Arctic coast, some of which are melting because of global warming. Oceana campaigns to combat climate change and the expansion of offshore drilling and oil spills. All donations go toward making our world's oceans healthier and safer, for generations to come.
