SEAL SITTERS / Living on Earth April 20, 2012On the shores of Alki Beach in western Seattle, Seal Sitters, a
group of concerned neighbors, have come together to protect the urban
beach’s seal pups.Alki Beach is a popular destination for Seattle natives, and it’s also
home to some of the region’s seal population. Seal pups are left alone
on shore while their mothers search the sea for food, and curious people
and dogs endanger the young seals. But a group of concerned neighbors
called Seal Sitters have banded together to protect the pups and educate
people. Seal Sitter founder Brenda Peterson, author of the children’s
book “Leopard and Silkie” and 11 year old volunteer Etienne, spoke with
host Bruce Gellerman about their quest to save seal pups.
