Disney's First Nature Documentary
16 July 2000 | by Ron OliverSee all my reviews

A Walt Disney TRUE-LIFE ADVENTURE Short Subject.

This excellent little documentary studies the saga of life ON SEAL ISLAND, one of the tiny specks of land in the Bering Sea. We witness the arrival of the bull fur seals, who stake out individual territory on the beach and await the arrival of the females. How the harems are gathered & the young tended is examined. Other inhabitants of the island, including its myriad & colorful bird life, are noted.

`This is one of a series of TRUE-LIFE ADVENTURES presenting strange facts about the world we live in. These films are photographed in their natural settings and are completely authentic, unstaged and unrehearsed.' Winston Hibler is the narrator.
