The Harp Seal Nursery: Mother and Pup, Gulf of St. Lawrence, Canada
A mother harp seal relaxes after nursing her pup. Pups are born on the ice in late February and nursed 12-15 days before the mother abandons them to mate and migrate Northward. The pups rely on stored fat and stable sea ice to sustain them until they mature enough to fend for themselves. A trend in rising temperatures and decreasing sea ice has resulted in unstable nurseries and mass pup mortality.

ترتاح الفقمة القيثارية الأمّ بعد إطعام صغارها. تولد الجراء على الجليد في أواخر شهر فبراير وترعاها الأمّ لمدة 12-15 يوماً قبل أن تتركها لتتزاوج وتهاجر شمالاً. تعتمدُ الجراء على الدهون المخزنة والجليد البحري المستقر لتبقى على قيد الحياة حتى تنضج بما يكفي لتدافع عن نفسها. أدّى ارتفاع درجات الحرارة وتقلّص الجليد البحري إلى عدم استقرار أماكن رعاية الجراء وموتها بأعدادٍ هائلة.
