Looking For Its Mother
A harp seal pup peers through the sea looking and waiting for its mother to return to the nursery. Harp Seals are born on the sea ice in late February and nursed for 12-15 days before their mother abandons them to mate and migrate back to the Arctic. Pups require stable ice to survive. Rising sea temperatures have resulted in unstable sea ice and years of extreme mortality.

يتأمّل جرو الفقمة القيثارية البحر منتظراً عودة أمّه. تولد جراء الفقمة القيثارية على الجليد البحري في أواخر فبراير، وترعاها أمّها لمدة تتراوح بين 12 و15 يوماً قبل أن تتركها لتتزاوج وتعود إلى القطب الشمالي. تحتاج الجراء إلى جليدٍ مستقر للبقاء على قيد الحياة. وأدّى ارتفاع درجات حرارة مياه البحر إلى عدم استقرار الجليد ما أسفر عن موت المزيد من الفقمات على مرّ السنين.
