Season 1 Episode 2

About the Episode

Giving birth and raising young is particularly challenging in Antarctica’s extreme conditions, forcing Weddell moms and pups to bear sub-zero temperatures and prevailing winds. How do they manage to do it so gracefully? To find out, Caitlin and Arlo travel to a seal colony during pupping season. Footage of seals was obtained under the authority of NMFS MMPA permit nos.1032-1917, 17236, & 21158
