Summary on Back
A Seal's Life
For hundreds of thousands of years an extraordinary journey has taken place in the sea. Twice a year along the west coast of North America, elephant seals set out alone on a nearly impossible roundtrip migration across the vast expanse of the North Pacific. For months they remain at sea, swimming thousands of miles while diving relentlessly to unimaginable depths in search of food. By journey's end they will have traveled farther in a year than any other mammal on Earth.
From the rugged, wave-swept shorelines of Northern California to the cold dark depths of the North Pacific, this is the incredible story of one of the greatest migratory marine mammals ever to inhabit the sea, a remarkable creature living a life of extremes and their species' never-ending struggle for survival.
