What should you do if you find a seal pup on a Northwest beach? Leave it alone! Chances are good it's just resting. Brenda Peterson, author of the new book Leopard & Silkie, joined us to share the amazing first-hand story of the vulnerable baby seals that are left on shore while their mothers hunt for food, and the concerned volunteers who keep vigil over them. The star of the book is six year old Miles, who organizes his own rescue mission to help the seals survive.
Featuring beautiful photographs of the seal pups and their natural habitat by Robin Lindsey, and with its emphasis on human compassion, this true account teaches children to appreciate the natural world by helping in any way they can.
