Alaska’s marine wildlife
Alaska’s extensive coastline hosts a diverse marine ecosystem, home to many wildlife species. Humpback whales migrate to Alaska from their winter birthing grounds to feed on the food-rich waters of zooplankton. Both resident and transient orca whales travel the waters in pods and can be seen feeding on salmon and marine mammals. Harbor seals, Steller sea lions, and sea otters live year-round along the coastal shores. All maritime wildlife photos here are available to license as stock photography or to purchase as fine art prints to display in your home or office.
