Wednesday evening after my work day was finished I decided to take a walk along the shoreline here to see if I could spot a few Seals. Came across a young Whitecoat pup and it looked pretty healthy.I suspect there were a few more along the rocks because I could see older Seals surfacing off shore checking things out. I suspect if I had more time I would of discovered more pups but I had to return home because of the fading daylight. Again this year we see no ice around our shoreline and not much ice cover in the whole Gulf of St. Lawrence.
The Associated Press reported that American biologists are currently trying to determine why harp seals from Canada have been showing up in U.S. waters in greater numbers this year and farther south than usual. While it’s unclear what drove about 100 seals south, experts say it’s possible that climatic conditions and food supply are playing a role.
