Seals and Sea Lions are "Sentinels of the Sea". They are "pinnipeds", marine mammals with fur that must haul out onto land on a regular basis. They have many fascinating behaviors, are highly intelligent, and have special adaptations that allow them to remain underwater for extended periods of time. They are "indicator" species that provide a reflection or barometer of many ocean conditions, and factors affecting the health of the oceans and the plants and animals that live in the ocean. Many of these factors affect humans as well. Learn more about seals and sea lions as "sentinels" of ocean conditions in the upcoming production "Sentinels of the Sea" due to be released early next year.
Species from around the world will be featured. Other ocean wildlife will also be featured, including manta rays, whale sharks, and more.
Rare and beautiful footage, including 4K Red One footage, will be included, of playful seals and sea lions underwater, engaged in natural behaviors, and showing mothers and pups on land.
Expert interviews, presentations about ecology and conservation challenges, and more will be presented. Produced by an award winning filmmaker. see film credits on documentary page
La Jolla Harbor Seals:
La Jolla is home to a unique colony of harbor seals at Casa Beach. Harbor seals are "true seals", or "phocids", meaning that they have no external ear flaps, have short flippers, and move with an inching motion on land; they are fast and agile in the water. By contrast, sea lions are "eared seals", with external ear flaps, and with large flippers, and they "walk" on land.
Harbor seals need to "haul out" on to a land surface on a daily or regular basis. During the spring, they also give birth, typically to a single pup. At this time, the "haulout site" is also a "rookery site".
It is important to allow the seals and their pups to rest without disturbance, and for mothers and pups to be able to bond without disturbance, which is essential to the survival of the pup.
This website will be providing information about the La Jolla seals, and will present photographs and video.
Please check out the short DVD documentary, "Harbor Seals of the Coast", due to be released soon!!!
The full length feature documentary in production, "Sentinels of the Sea", will be providing promos and trailers, and an opportunity for funding support and film credits. Individual donations welcome and corporate or business sponsorships available for credit listings and placement of your logo.
