Jared said that he mostly ate fish, squid, and other marine invertebrates, which he explained to me were marine animals without vertebrae or spines. He told me that his main predators are Great White Sharks, Killer Whales, Steller Sea Lions, and humans (Seal Conservation Society, 2011). Jared continued to say that Great White Sharks, Killer Whales, Steller Sea Lions kill them for food, and so do humans, but humans also do it just for their own gain, because they do not absolutely have to consume Northern Fur

There are many things wrong in this world and one of the biggest issues would be the killing of my kind.
