  • Comment: This adorable harp seal pup was born just several days ago on the floating ice of the White Sea. Usually, harp seals (Pagophilus groenlandicus) give birth on floe ice. In case of global climate change, especially warming and as a result of ice melting in Arctic - no place to give birth for this adorable sea mammals.
