after a long day paddle I found this cute baby seal that was laying a bit unusual far from the beach,. To make a long story short I found out through a couple who came by that a man much earlier today, had try to move it to the water multiple times, and every time the seal had move back up😢! that man probably thought he helped the seal, but he did ONLY make it worse for it😡. I often see baby seals this time of year here when im out on adventures and it's completely natural that baby seals lay alone at the beach.. even a whole day!. it's completely normal if it makes sounds which sounds like it cry. the mother is out hunting for food so she can produce enough milk for the baby. she returns usually twice a day for a very short time to feed the baby seal.. (like 10 to 20min) then she's of to the hunting grounds again. If you see a baby seal at the beach. just leave it alone, don't stay close for too long as the mother won't come to it before it feels safe.
Because of what this man did, I had to move the seal closer to the beach, so the mother can find her baby again, call National Nature & wildlife agency which arrived later, and they will monitor the seal for next days to see if any harm is done. I too will go look again tomorrow, and hopefully i wont find it there, meaning it has been reunited with the mother💙
Please if you see an animal in the wild and you're in doubt if it needs help,, call an expert or someone who can inform you first, otherwise you might end up harming the animal, more than you help them. #seal #seals #wildlife #animals #sea #sealife #summer2018 #denmark #adventure #ocean #oceanlife #protectwildlife #wildlifephotography #nikonkeymission
