Antarctica’s Animals
Antarctica is where 60% of Earth's entire seal population eats, sleeps, and swims. Only two families, the true and the eared, make up Antarctica's seal population. Seals are an important part of the local history; it was because of them that people saw a lot of the continent's land. Hunters searched everywhere for seals, as their fur was all the rage for women's coats in the 1800's. They became rare until whaling took some of the pressure off of seal hunting, and an international law designed to protect the species, called the "Convention for the Conservation of Antarctic Seals," brought seal populations back to relatively high levels.
