Cambron-Plage is the habitat of our common seals. With a population estimated at about 5 to 6 million individuals, this species (divided into several subspecies) is present along the shores of the northern hemisphere. When they lose their winter fur, the seals do not eat anything for weeks. This is a behavior that also occurs with some species of penguins during the ruin (of feathers), as in the Black Footed penguins, with which our seals cohabitate in Pairi Daiza.

 

In the summer of 2017 two seals were born in Pairi Daiza: Stitch (male) and Bonnie (female).
