Harbor Seals and Marine Mammal Adaptations

On-Demand is out for summer. For more opportunities, checkout our PORTScasts running through June! Visit the PORTScast page to register for all upcoming webinars.

Students will explore the similarities and differences between humans and marine mammals, specifically the Harbor Seal! Students will observe and identify what crucial adaptations ensure seal survival in the cold Pacific waters of northern California.

While we discuss the life of a Harbor Seal, we will talk about the MacKerricher State Marine Conservation Area and learn how this Marine Protected Area (MPA) ensures the health and safety of these marvelous marine mammals.
