Marine wildlife photo gallery
Alaska's extensive coastline hosts a diverse marine ecosystem, which is home to many species of wildlife. Humpback whales migrate to Alaska from their winter birthing grounds to feed on the food-rich waters of zooplankton. Both resident and transient orca whales travel the waters in pods and can be seen feeding on salmon and marine mammals. Seals and sea lions are a common sight, although the Steller sea lion population is declining in Western Alaska.
