Life in a Fur Seal Rookery

Migration back to Pribilof Islands in the early summer.

Adult males arrive first to establish their territories.

Pregnant females arrive in late June/early July and are pursed by the males.

The pups are born with a black coat.

In September the pups molt their first coats and grow a silver pelt.

In November, northern fur seals begin migrating to the North Pacific Ocean.
