Example text

If you do, you are doing several dangerous things: n n n You are endangering the animal’s survival by taking it from its food source, possibly from its young, and making it burn valuable calories. This is a crime, subject to arrest and fines – if you see someone hassling wildlife, make a note of their license plate or boat numbers and report them at the next ranger station. You are endangering yourself. Every year people are attacked by moose. Invariably, the moose wins. Bear attack stories are largely lies.

Fin whales are giants of the sea, with some approaching 80 feet in length. They are dark grey to brownish-black on the sides and white on the underside. Their head shading remains dark further back on the left side than the right. Like humpbacks and minke whales, fin whales have baleen and feed on krill, straining the tiny animals from the water. Fin whales are rarely seen breaching; usually you can see the spout, then a small black fin, and then an incredibly long back. Introduction Humpbacks only feed in Alaska – they fast during the winter months in Hawaii.

Harbor seals grow to about 180 pounds. They’re covered with short hair, and are usually colored either with a dark background and light rings, or light sides and a belly with dark splotches. They generally stay within about 150 miles of where they were born. They do not migrate, but they will wander about to find food – walleye, cod, herring, salmon, squid, and octopus, among other sealife. You’ll sometimes see them surprisingly far upstream on bigger rivers, as they follow the salmon. We’ve seen them a hundred miles up the Stikine River.
