By the time an elephant seal finishes its roundtrip journey from the coasts of Northern California to the depths of the North Pacific, it will have logged more travel hours in a year than any other mammal on Earth.
And A Seal's Life - The Story of the Northern Elephant Seal captures them all. Well, of course the doc's been edited into a more bite-sized portion - 47 minutes to be exact - and it just so happens to feature Library of Congress "living legend" Dr. Sylvia Earle, former chief scientist at NOAA and current explorer-in-residence with the National Geographic Society.
This flick is in for a splash landing July 7.
