You just have to check out the Race Rocks website [under Pantheism–>right]. A baby elephant seal was born Feb 6th or 7th & they have pictures. Also, check out the video with sound of Ninene, believed to be the first elephant seal born this far north.

Listening to the sounds from mom & baby is almost like being there — certainly better for all that the public be kept at bay. My own pup, Lady Daisy May, cannot figure out what those strange noises coming from my computer are but she sure wants to know. She thinks chasing bunnies at UVic is fun — imagine what she would think of this pup — of course, it is a LOT bigger.
I love nature. I love Vancouver Isle.
