Dutch seal pups on slippery slope

Experts say bad weather and over-fishing are endangering seals and other marine life.

     
    A seal sanctuary in northern Holland has reported an increasing number of unhealthy baby seals washing up on local beaches.

    Wadden Sea is home to over 5,000 seals, but recent storms separated a record number of pups from their mothers. Scientists at the sanctuary have found that bad weather is not the only reason for the seals' weakened condition.

    Al Jazeera's Tim Friend reports from Wadden Sea in the Netherlands.
