Leopard Seals

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 2:19 pm on 3 October 2017

Early last month on critter of the week, we talked about Leopard Seals.

Since then we have been contacted by those actually working with these fascinating creatures, and they have just had a pretty busy week - a pup was born, only the second ever born in New Zealand - the first in 40 years.

Dr Krista Hupman, cetacean biologist at NIWA tells us more about what she does and the implications this birth has on the research of leopard seals worldwide.
