VOA News - Saving Seals Can Unlock Secret to Saving Oceans
excerpts from above:
Quote:
"Seals are top predators in the food chain," he points out. "They eat fish. We eat fish. A lot of what they're feeling the effects of, we can see the effects of in humans. So it's nice to be able to study those animals in a controlled setting, like the marine rehab center, and seeing what really is affecting them out in the wild."

Seal sicknesses point to environmental ills

And what's affecting them is pollution from oil and chemical spills, reduction of their food supply, conflicts with fishermen, diseases and global warming.
