Making Waves for Seals

Seals are one of the most engaging groups of marine animals on our planet. They evolved from land animals that were related to modern mammals like dogs and bears.  

These creatures took to the sea about 30 million years ago, taking advantage of the rich resources found there while maintaining close ties to the land. Today they are found all over the world. Making Waves for Seals introduces students to the story of seals and the threats they face, including: pollution, global warming, entanglement in fishing nets, and commerial hunting.
