Mary Marshall, a team member from the Cheesemans’ Ecological Safari was sent on an expedition to the Antarctic Peninsula. On the Antarctic islands and mainland, it is required by law that you stay at least 30 feet away from birds and 15 feet away from land or sea animals, such as a seal. You will be amazed at what happens!
However, if the animal approaches you, closer proximity is permitted. Mary sat down to photograph an elephant seal pup – Just watch what happens next!
What an incredible experience to get so close to the cute seal pup! Watching him snuffle around Mary gave me the “awww’s”. It was like he was giving her seal kisses! Share this video with others for their daily dose of adorable.
