Staff at the Sitka Sound Science Center took this photo of a young elephant seal on a beach near Sitka on Tuesday afternoon. Elephant seals are not common in this part of Southeast Alaska. It was reported as a stranding, but it’s no longer on the beach, so chances are it probably was just hauled out to molt. If you see a stranded marine mammal, you can call NOAA’s hotline at 877-925-7773. (Photo: Sitka Sound Science Center)
