A harp seal pup called a white coat seeks shelter from the relentless winds that scour the sea ice nursery in the Gulf of St. Lawrence near Magdalen Island, Quebec. Harp seal pups depend on stable sea ice for survival after they are born in the ice nursery in late February and nursed for 12-15 before their mother abandons them. Recent years of higher temperatures have resulted in unstable sea ice and early break up of the nursery causing mass moratlity of pups.
