Until recently, the 80% of their lives fur seals spend at sea searching for food was a mystery; discover their lives underwater in this set of videos from the NATURE mini-series Animals with Cameras. In the accompanying classroom activity, students analyze data about how those foraging trips affect the quality of the milk seals produce for their pups.
Additional support materials are available, including discussion questions and teaching tips. For more resources from NATURE, check out the collection page.
