Seasons of Life – Russell G Foster and Leon Kreitzman
Northern elephant seals, like many other migrants along the Pacific coast can be very badly affected by changes in the climate.

Severe storms, elevated sea levels, heavy rains and very high tides combined to submerge colonies and wash away pups. Such events are predicted to increase with climate change
