Course Description

In the world of nature, no animal exemplifies cuteness more than a newborn harp seal pup. Its large black eyes, curious unwary nature, and spotless white fur make it a universal symbol for innocence and vulnerability and since the 1970s, a magnet for Eco tourists. Each year, for two to three weeks, the sea ice near Quebec's Magdalen Islands in the Gulf of St. Lawrence is home to hundreds of thousands of pregnant harp seals that come to the area, each to give birth and nurse their single pup. Landing by helicopter on the featureless sea ice surrounded by thousands of pups vocally imploring their mothers to nurse them is a nature experience like no other.
