Here's a quickie Northern Fur Seal. Kiddo's been asking me to draw seals and she picked out a bunch of photos she liked. I'll definitely be drawing another one since I belive I can do better than this, but it didn't  come out too bad. Onward and upward!

Little Krampus was only six months old when our Monterey Bay response team rescued him last year. The starving fur seal had hoisted himself on to a rock at a local park. But like most northern fur seals, Krampus was feisty and gave our team members a run for their money! Swipe 👈 to see Krampus all tuckered out at our triage center in Monterey and then big and healthy after a few months of care at our hospital in Sausalito. We hope you're doing well back in the wild, Krampus! (3rd photo by Bill Hunnewell) #NorthernFurSeal #FurSeal #TBT #ThrowbackThursday #AnimalRescue #TMMC

Northern Fur Seal: This seal  belongs to a family called Otariidae (eared seals). Due to the fact that they have external earflaps and use their front flippers to swim. #northernfurseal #seal #seals #marinemammal #sea #ocean #sealife #oceanlife #marinebiology #life #nature #aquarium #earedseals #flippers #swimming #savetheseas #protecttheocean #lovethesea #interesting #🌊

30 miles west of San Francisco and 5 miles northeast of the continental shelf, a 120 acre granite refuge sharply juts up from the surface of the Pacific Ocean. The small group of islands and sea stacks are remnants of the Sierra Nevada Mountain range that rifted from the mainland with a ride on the Pacific Plate. For humans it's like walking on the moon. For marine and terrestrial wildlife it's a plentiful oasis. .

だって今日は「耳の日」だから😁(← ふつーは、ひな祭りだろぉ💦)
.
ゴマフアザラシやゼニガタアザラシといった「アザラシ」は、“ぽつん”と穴があいてるだけ🕳。
.
一方、キタオットセイやアシカは 耳たぶみたいなのが、“ぽん”とついてます。
.
ちなみに・・・イルカさんにも耳があるようで、目の横にある“たての線”がソレだそうです♪
.
水族館に行ってチェックするのも また楽しいですよ😄。ただ、黙って見せてくれるか?わかりませんけどね💦

I couldn't keep this little lady all to myself. It would be a crime not to share the cuteness. She has one eye and personality that resonates through the glass divider. I could have stayed the whole day playing with her 💕 Seal fact! They're endangered due to first-hunting (they've been on the protected species list since the early 1900s) and now due to not having access to proper food. #education #northernfurseal #endangeredspecies #themoreyouknow🌈 #homeschool #learning

I studied the feeding ecology and habitat associations of northern fur seal pups from Bering Island, Russia as my PhD Thesis. These pups are weaned around 4 months old and leave their natal beaches to live at sea for about 2 years before returning to their natal shores. With no parental care and a steep learning curve on learning to hunt on their own, it is thought that these young animals face high mortality rates that could impact entire population trends. We used satellite tags and stomach temperature telemeters to see where the seal pups went and how often they were eating. The idea was to compare the behavior from this population of seals in a healthy population in Russia to the behavior of pups from the declining population on The Pribilof Islands which were being studied by another research group. Unfortunately the tags did not transmit for more than 8 months and many stopped transmitting after 2 months, but it was striking to see how far and wide these young ones would go.

Who is the king of the hill? Northern fur seals are known for being playful and intelligent, but also very feisty. Last year we rescued 17 fur seal pups. #FunFactFriday #NorthernFurSeal #NorthernFurSeals #marinebiology #marinemammals #marinemammal #pinniped #pinnipeds #TMMC #MarineMammalCenter

Yesterday the Oregon Coast Aquarium admitted an injured male northern fur seal pup for rehabilitation.

The cause? Entanglement by a plastic string, likely from a balloon or packaging material.

Yesterday I had the opportunity to photograph the rehab of a northern fur seal pup wounded by entanglement from a balloon string. It would have died if it hadn’t been found almost strangled in an RV Park. One of the coolest things I’ve seen in my life, but also the saddest. Be conscious of where your trash goes. Grateful we (@oregoncoastaquarium) could save this little guy. #saveouroceans #plastickills #oregoncoast

Fur seals spend a lot of time grooming #highmaintenance  #repost #cimwi Facebook page (check out their page to read more): CIMWI rescued this little Northern fur seal on Monday. He is very underweight at 15 pounds (pups are born in June at 10-12 pounds) but already responding well to medical and rehabilitation care. #002 also has a very feisty demeanor which is a positive sign for this wild marine mammal and typical of the species. 🐚

Northern Fur Sea pups, safe from sea lions and orcas, play in a shallow cove beside this rookery in the Bering Sea. The pups showed no fear to me —a clumsy, finless oaf swimming in slow motion and hovering in place. I floated, watching the grace and energy of these months-old pinnipeds at play off an island coast as autumn sun pierced the 38° water’s surface and danced across the churned sea floor. Stay tuned for the last frames where you can see water inside the lens port obscuring the shot. This happened after sand wedged into my camera housing between the back and the frame, eventually allowing water to follow in after it and flood the camera. (#alwaysinsured)

I was extremely spoiled rotten the other day and got the chance to go behind the scenes at the aquarium! 🐠🦀🦈 I met Tikva, the incredibly smart Northern fur seal, who gave me a smooch 💋 I was smitten! Next, I spent time with an Aquarist who showed me Mystique, the friendly giant Pacific octopus 🐙. I got to hand fed her and be 'hugged' by her! Then we gave little Hardy and his 5 sea otter friends some ice treats and watched them play with them and smash them to bits!❄ Finally, Helen, the Pacific white-sided dolphin 🐬, swam right up next to me and gave me a little blow! I had to remind myself to breath again, I was so caught up in the moment! Being amoungt the sea life makes my heart gleam with happiness! 💖 
It's so relieving to know that some of the animals on our planet who have struggled due to pollution or human intervention, like Scuna, the green sea turtle,  have somewhere so amazing to live and be happy since many of them are now disabled and would not survive in the wild🌎
- A huge thank you to the staff there who were all very welcoming and beyond inspirational!

I’m not saying that I am going to elope with a Northern fur seal, but I will say that I’m thinking about it. I made this wonderful little friend thanks to the deeply kind folks at @vanaqua 🐟✨ She was more prickly around the whiskers than I expected; but actually had surprisingly pleasant breath. We all have to make compromises in love, right? 💕 (Vancouver Aquarium peeps: Is this Tikva? Also, you are the best!!) #sealkisses #vancouverlife #vancouveraquarium #vanaqua #vanaquarium #furseal #northernfurseal #sealedwithakiss #sealkiss
I’m not saying that I am going to elope with a Northern fur seal, but I will say that I’m thinking about it.

My sealfie with Flaherty, #NorthernFurSeal at the @seattleaquarium today. He was very playful and interactive with me and the guests. #bachelorettelife #volunteering #singleinseattle #lifeinpacnw #flipperedcutie #pinnipedlove #notreallyaseal #ottoridae
Long time, no see. ☺ This is a #35mm #photograph of #pointbennett on #sanmiguelisland .  This is one of the most remote places that I've ever been. It's a 16 mile #hike roundtrip and it's incredible!  All those black spots you see are 10's of thousands of #pinnipeds. #sealions , #northernfurseal , #elephantseals and #guadalupefurseals all congregate on this beach. What an awesome sight!

Luna was rescued off the coast of Laguna Beach, California last year and was brought to the New England Aquarium as a young pup for she couldn't care for herself

A Northern Fur seal at Mystic Aquarium. Their hind flippers are the largest of any animal in the fur seal and sea lion family. Those are some flippers! 😊

Northern Fur Seals are native to coastal Western Canada as well as the US state of Alaska, Washington, Oregon, and California.  They can also be found in Eastern Russia and Northern Japan.  These animals are classed as “vulnerable” by the IUCN and their population trend is decreasing.  Back in the 18th century, the species were threatened by the commercial harvesting of animal fur, but eventually commercial harvesting ended because of treaties and agreements.  Nowadays, the main factor contributing to their population decline are overfishing, entanglement, and oil spill.  Scientists at UBC are working with the Vancouver Aquarium to study the feeding behavior of the northern fur seals so that in the near future, fishing activities in the Pacific Northwest can be properly and sustainably managed and the northern fur seals population can also be protected. 
This photo was taken at the Vancouver Aquarium and the seal in the photo is one of the eight rescued fur seals.
