About The Elephant Seal
The Northern elephant seals, the second largest seal in the world, are known for their round face and beautiful large eyes. Found in the North Pacific from Baja California, Mexico to the Gulf of Alaska and Aleutian Islands. Due to massive hunting primarily for their blubber used for lamp oil, by 1910 their population fell down to less than 100. In the past several years due to toxic runoffs in the ocean, over fishing and changing climate, there has been mass strandings of dehydrated and hungry elephant seals along California Coast.
