Small seals in Russia - level 2
A centre in Saint Petersburg rescues baby seals. They are usually suffering from climate change and pollution.
The staff has been fighting for the life of one little seal. It was covered in oil when it was brought to the centre. There was a great danger that it would die, but the seal survived. The seal is very attached to people. That is a big problem because the animals are returned into the wild.
Most of the animals are brought to the centre by locals.
Difficult words: pollution (the nature’s dirty), attach (emotionally connected), wild (nature), local (person who lives by the centre).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
