The Baltic ringed seal, the world’s smallest seal species

The world's smallest seal species, the Baltic ringed seal, lives in Finnish waters. Its length is 100–160 cm and it weighs 45–90 kg. The Baltic ringed seal is now an endangered species, due to climate change, environmental toxins, and the extensive hunting that was previously permitted.

WWF is doing a lot of commendable work for saving Baltic ringed seals. This work is also supported by Tallink and Silja Line. Petteri Tolvanen, head of the Finnish biodiversity programme at WWF Finland, talks about what kind of seals live in the Baltic Sea, and what the current situation of Baltic ringed seals is like.

Working long hours at the terminal in Tallinn

The Passenger Terminal D, which Tallink uses at the Port of Tallinn, has been in the middle of renovations since last summer. Originally designed for approximately three million annual passengers, the terminal is currently used by double the amount of passengers, so an extension is necessary.

The sea-loving intendant of the Megastar – Üllar Märtin

At the agreed time, the cheerful intendant shakes my hand at the Superstar's information desk. His smile doesn't falter even when considering the upcoming two-month stint of constant extra work.
