Comments: Every March, 250,000 harp seals give birth on vast slabs of ice in Canada's Gulf of St. Lawrence. For three weeks, the pups are fluffy, round, white and lying fully exposed on the open ice. There is an ungoing controversy over whether hunters should be allowed to kill the seals for their fur. Attempts are being made to build a tourism industry so local money can be made by looking at seals rather than killing them.
