Globally, the ice is spitting-distance close to the average calculated by the NSIDC for this date – which means lots of winter/spring hunting habitat for polar bears. Atlantic Arctic Seals on Arctic Tours Seals belong to the order Pinnipedia, which is made up of the three families of fin footed marine mammals: Phocidae (true seals, or hair seals), Otariidae (fur seals and sea lions, or eared seals), and Odobenidae (walruses).
