Magdalen Islands #2: Close encounters with Seals

Every spring pregnant harp seals haul themselves up onto the ice floes in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, find shelter from the frigid winds and give birth. From our base in the Magdalen Islands we take a helicopter trip out to the ice floes and with the assistance of a biologist and research scientist get close to the seal pups in their nursery grounds and gain insight to this unique wildlife experience. Part 2 of 3 showcasing the islands history, beautiful beaches, summer and winter adventures. For more information check out episode 8 in the Railway Adventures category.
