19 miles off the coast of Maine at the Seal Island National Wildlife Refuge the Gray Seal Pupping Cam is capturing the magic of birthing season for the world to enjoy.

NOAA scientist Dr. Stephanie Wood wrote in a press release, “This cam will help us to do the near impossible — observe the gray seal pupping process in the wild over a 60 day period of time from our phones, tablets and laptops. It will also open the door to people around the world who want to watch nature unfold.”

The camera will also capture the habits of bald eagles this winter as they migrate to the northeast to feed on the seals’ placentas and embryonic sacs. That’s the animal kingdom. Nothing wasted.

Just over 30 seconds into the following video, you’ll see a direct shot of a mother seal giving birth to a pup, and then witness those beautiful first moments between mother and child.
