Harbor Seal Refuge At South Sawyer Glacier

Several hundred harbor seals rest on ice floes as huge chunks of ice fall off the face of South Sawyer Glacier in Tracy Arm. Earlier in June, the pregnant females gave birth on the ice floes to their pups. Harbor seals pick the end of the fjord, as it is generally a safe area from predators such as sea lions or orcas.
