Wildlife at Tracy Arm

Whales, bears, bald eagles and mountain goats are common sights, but nothing excites more squeals than newborn harbor seal pups resting on diamond-blue icebergs. These plump pinnipeds, which weigh about 24 pounds at birth, nurse for their first month. The babies are able to swim almost immediately, but that doesn't stop them from lazing about in the summer’s warmth, protected from terrestrial predators. Need to squint to see those sweet little sausages? Don't begrudge the space between you: It helps ensure that southeastern Alaska’s dwindling seal population thrives!
