St. Paul Celebrates Fur Seal Treaty Centennial

Wednesday, August 10 2011

Last week, the residents of St. Paul held a three-day blowout celebration commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Northern Fur Seal Treaty, the first international agreement made over wildlife conservation.  While there was plenty of feasting and dancing, there was also concern about one big problem: The island's seals are still disappearing.

KUCB's Alexandra Gutierrez traveled to St. Paul for the festivities and to learn more about the status of the shrinking fur seal population.
