Discover The Baikal seal Russia

The Baikal seal is a small seal that inhabits the area around Lake Baikal, and is the only freshwater seal in the world. You will undoubtedly see one during your stay, as they are very curious animals. You may have to pay to photograph them, however. They are a protected species, and the hunting of them is also highly regulated. In June, large groups of Baikal seals take over the shores of the Ushkany Islands, as the rocks are the perfect place for them to rest.
