Harp seal pups are born on the sea ice in the Gulf fo St. Lawrence in late February and nursed for 12 to 15 days before their mother abandons them to mate and migrate North. Pups require stable ice to mature. As tempertures rise the unstable sea ice nursery often disintegrates early or does not form at all.
In keeping with our concerns about the environment, we carefully considered the type of wood for our mouldings. Over 90% of our exhibition frame mouldings produced from the hardwood Triplochiton Scleroxylon commonly known as African Maple or Ayous.
This wood species from the Sterculiaceae family is manufactured into moulding in Italy and is our choice since it stable, and most importantly is not listed in the CITES Appendices, and is reported by the IUCN as being a species of least concern.
