Harbor seals in massive ice field of icebergs
Photographer: Mark Kelley
Location: South Sawyer Glacier, Tracy Arm-Fords Terror Wilderness, Southeast Alaska (Wilderness)
Bunches of harbor seals hang out on the pack ice in front of the South Sawyer Glacier in Tracy Arm-Fords Terror Wilderness, Southeast Alaska. The ice affords the seals protection from their main predators, killer whales. The South Sawyer glacier is one of the most active calving tidewater glacier in Alaska providing this amazing landscape of ice that seals need and has become one of the most productive pupping areas in all of Alaska for harbor seals.
